The Grand Meadow Cemetery is suitably located, and well cared for. On March 11, 1873, a meeting of citizens was held, and various sums were subscribed for the purchase of a cemetery. Temporary officers were appointed as follows: President, O.W. Case; treasurer, L. E. Pearce; Secretary B.F. Langsworthy. A committee of three, consisting of O.W. Case, H.P. Coleman, and William Lewis was appointed to draft the by-laws. The Grand Meadow Cemetery Association was then formally organized, the directors being O.W. Case, B.F. Langsworthy, L.E. Pearce, A.R. Austin, C.F. Greening, N.C. Markham, and William Lewis. C.F. Greening was the first actuary.
The first burial was probably that of Arthur Wood, October 7, 1873.
