The information for this cemetery was found in "The History of Branch County, 1984," page 27. It was submitted by Nathan Shumway. The Paine cemetery is located on Cavanaugh Road in section 33 on the north side of the railroad. It is not known for sure if a deed was given. It may be the oldest cemetery in the township. A burial was made as early as 1840. It has been told, according to Mr Shumway, that when the railroad was graded, they uncovered unmarked graves. It has also been thought that Indians were buried near the same location. There are not more than twenty-five or thirty grave markers. Some are not readable.
