Cemetery notes and/or description:
The first settlers arrived in the Newburgh area of Western Wayne County about 1825. One of these settlers was Salmon Kingsley, a Revolutionary War veteran; he died about two years later. Salmon Kinglsey was buried in here and later the land was encompased into what is now known as the Newburgh Cemetery. In 1832 a burial society was organized and Joseph Kinsgley, the son of Salmon Kingsley, gave some land for the cemetery that is now commemorated in this State of Michigan Historical Marker. Those who established the burial society purchased additional land such that Newburgh Cemetery now encompasses 2.35 acres. Many of the burials are that of members of the Newburgh Methodist Church which is about 1/4 mile west of the cemetery. The cemetery holds approximately 4 veterans of the Revoluntionary War, 50 veterans of the Civil War 4 veternas of WW I, 1 Veteran of WW II and 1 Veteran of the Korean War. The Village of Newburgh became part of Livonia when it became a city in the 1950's.
