Partial Listing
Donated by Rick Doty, Becky Jo Gross Moore
"The cemetery is well maintained."

"The Huber Farm adjoined the land of the cemetery at one time (or close). My relative Patty Schetter still lives in the old homestead place (house still there and liveable). It's 3 miles outside Brighton - they had a pig farm for a long time." Becky
