Some hollows were filled and records were begun. Lots sold for $5.00; grave openings were $3.00. Ten of the grave makers at this cemetery carry birth dates of individual born in the 1700ís. Also buried in the Bountiful Cemetery are servicemen who served in all the U.S. wars and the Civil War. On June 8, 1938, the L.D.S. Church deeded the cemetery property to Bountiful City. Since Bountiful was the second settlement in the Utah Territory, this cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the State. Stately pines raised from seed by Franklin D. Ashdown forms the border front Second West and adores the Cemetery throughout.|
