Cemetery notes and/or description:
Formerly known as one of 2 Spring Brook cemeteries within Spring Brook Township until 1943 when the name was officially changed to Waneka.
NE corner of SW 1/4 of section 8 was established in 1858 10 rods by 20 rods sold for $20.00 to be used for a cemetery to the trustees of the Spring Brook Cemetery Association. Additional space was purchased of one acre adjoining to the south in 1912 and again in 1980. In 1943 it was voted to change the name to Waneka to reduce confusion between the 2 separate cemeteries with the same name of Spring Brook within the same township.
Historic lore indicates there may have been some connection to an Indian girl who may or may not have been living or buried in the area prior to it being a designated cemetery in 1858.
