This cemetery was deeded December 30, 1873 but there were a number of burials in the 1860's, the oldest extant stone bearing date of January 24, 1860. Many of the persons buried here were Quakers. The Quakers came to the area from Hamilton and Grant counties, Indiana.

Some stones are obviously missing and quite a few are very worn and/or missing in part. Wives, relationships, and more complete dates have been added in parenthesis where such information was determined from newspapers or other records.

Copying commenced at the rods on the right-hand side of the cemetery. Direction was reversed at the end on each row.

I'm waiting just over the river
For my husband and son and friends
While Jesus the beautiful giver
His light on their pathway sends.
O' walk in the light my beloved ones
Till we meet on the shining shore
When pain and all sin and temptation
Will never be known anymore.
