History:
Information from the files of John Martin Smith

Last But Not Least - The Cemetery The first settlers probably buried their dead on some favorite home spot, some around the Methodist church, and some on the northeast corner of the George Houck farm. I well remember seeing the monuments. The ground was so wet they bought a plot from Rudolph Bair, Sr., south of town and across Carnes Run. Rudolph Bair, Jr., first wife, Catherine, was the first to be buried there in 1849.
The graves from the church and Houck farm were moved there some few years ago. Andy Sponohour bought land across the road and opened up a new plot. Having no official organization, the town got together, organized and called the cemetery, The White City.
