HistoryEstablished in 1845.
NoteThe cemetery was cared for by the Leonard Family until this past year when the Township took over its care. Mr. Mark Leonard was an enormous help with his recording of the difficult headstones. He also mapped out the exact layout of all the burials and updated that information. Our drawing is not to scale but gives a general layout of where each grave is located. Click to view Map!
