This cemetery is privately maintained by a descendant of the Bittner who deeded the land. According to the descendant there are more people buried in the cemetery than there are markers. She has recorded those believed to be buried without markers, based on oral history from relatives in the area. There was a burial book at one time but it has been lost.

According to the oral tradition, this cemetery was deeded between 1840 and 1890. The Bittner family gave permission to the Chippewa Indian tribe to bury their dead there instead of trying to transport them to Mt. Pleasant for burial. The tradition holds that there are the remains of five Chippewas buried around the perimeter of the cemetery.
