In 1836, Benajah Aldrich set aside one half acre of his farm for burial purposes. Henry Knapp, Benajah Aldrich brother-in-law, was the first to be buried here. Most of the burial took place in the 19th century.

One can find the victorian symbol for grief, the weeping willow, on many of the gravestones, as well as footstones, many in their original positions, which bear only the initials of the deceased.

Novi-Histocial Commission takes care of this cemetery. Any graves/markers missing were noted, if needed. This cemetery is no longer being used, but is well kept.

I compiled this on Jul 25, 2002, I physically went to this cemetery to obtain said information.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
