CommentThis cemetery was laid out and plotted in 1857, but contains many older stones moved there from other cemeteries. The gravestone for Sarah Tripp dated 12 Oct 1823 states "This monument the first erected in this Grave Yard." St. Michael's Church cemetery was moved here and later some stones were moved back next to the church building. The actual cemetery records were used to complete this list of burials in 1994 and photographs taken by Julie Nathanson were used to add names that were not found in the records. Some information was found in the records like relationships, more complete dates, and death locations that are not on the gravestones.
