Total records = 817.
From Ruggles drive south on SR 29 to Spruce Road. Continue east for only
a short distance. The cemetery is on the south side of the road.
Cemetery was chartered 1901, however many burials took place in the
mid-1800's. The Cemetery is operated by a corporation, with officers
and a governing board of directors who meet semiannually.
The Cemetery is well kept and still in use. The older portion of the
cemetery still has available graves, newer sections have been opened.
A paved parking area was constructed in 2002, and the Chapel was renovated,
including a ramp and new lighting. Funerals may be held in the cemetery
or in the Chapel.
