Search Bellona Cemetery (Old):

Old pioneer cemetery just north of Bellona on the east side of Pre-Emption Road between Kashong Switch Road and Rice Road. It is back from the road in a heavily wooded area. Once the leaves are out, this cemetery is not visible from the road. It is completely abandoned and not maintained at all. Many stones are broken and/or fallen over.

This was the original cemetery in Bellona, prior to the establishment of the current Bellona Cemetery around 1870. It is presumed that many of the people represented by the oldest gravestones in that cemetery were originally buried here, but reinterred once the new cemetery was established. There are still two veterans of the Revolutionary War buried here.

It is also referred to as the North Hill Cemetery.
