Seventh Township Cemetery

The Seventh Township Cemetery was deeded by David and Hannah Smith to Daniel Northrip, Benjamin Curtiss and William Plumb for twenty dollars on November 15, 1823.... "For a burying ground and should be kept for the purpose mentioned in good repair, with a fence around it." It is said that this ground of one acre is more than full, and there is nothing to mark the graves of many. Ten Revolutionary War soldiers are buried here. Several of the stones bear dates as early as 1806. It is probable that they were re-interred here from earlier family plots. Many of the gravestones have been broken off and discarded. A lot of the graves are marked with only a small piece of fieldstone with no markings on them.
