This cemetery is a private cemetery, owned and maintained by the Partin family and only family are buried in it up to now. All family members take turns with the maintainence.
As related to me by my Grandfather, Elvin Partin, he said that his Mother, Sarah Catherine (Turner) Partin, told his Father, Elam Partin, that when she died she wanted buried under the Cedar on the hill next to the to the property line. So began the Partin Family Cemetery in 1917. First grave being hers with Elam to her left when looking at the cemetery from the gate.
This contains all existing burials up to the summer of 2005. All burials have a headstone. It is still used as needed by the family.- Joyce Riley
