Contributed by Larry L Ketchum, Mar 22, 2003 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 12.
Location: Newton Township, Marquette County, Wisconsin. From highway I-39 in the Village of Westfield, go east 3.9 miles on CTH E to CTH B, turn left (north) on CTH B and go 3.6 miles, cemetery is on west side of road.
The cemetery is well maintained by the Township of Newton, but it has not been used in many decades, and most of the stones have deteriorated badly. There is also evidence of unmarked graves.
I have transcribed from my readings, which I took from all known tombstones, on Sep 17 1997.
