"Maplewood cemetery was so named September 28, 1869 following years of
inactivity and a civil war. It was readied for selling plots with an onslaught of sales August 2, 1870 among the many early purchasers was a Louisa Spencer. The west half of Block 9 was set aside for a "Potters Field", and the files in the office of the Association list over 600 names of people buried in that section. For these, no stones mark the graves.

"Maplewood Cemetery is now jointed with Memorial Lawn Cemetery and are under private ownership. There is an office on the grounds and records are well kept. They have been most helpful in suppling information to those who have family buried in the both cemeteries. Maplewood is the older cemetery with an old soldiers plot "soldiers acre", where many veterans of the Civil War are buried."
