"Old Time"  Partial Listing
Updated April 20, 2012

Brief History: In examining the various early atlas pages of Benton Township, it appears that the cemetery was either located next to or directly on William Wilder property in the North East Corner of Section 13, Benton Township, just North of the village of Millburg. And one of the earliest burials in this cemetery is Nellie Wilder (died 1846). In earlier records we find James, George and William Wilder also owning property in section 13 of Benton Township.
