These two cemeteries are owned by the township, and date from the 1830s. The township completed historical research on the individuals buried therein, and their roles in early township development. Historic marker signs with information, diagrams and gravesite locations were prepared from funds raised as part of the township's 175th anniversary celebration held in September 2009.
Attendees toured the two cemeteries, and returned to the township hall for a potluck lunch, historical remarks, and comments by Dale Weidmayer and the Board of Trustees.
