In 1860, Jonas TarBush (also known as Jonas T. Bush) donated the first acre of land for use as a cemetery. In 1896, his son, H. L. TarBush donated a second acre to expand the existing cemetery. In 1936, an additional 2.4 acres were added on to the south and west sides, and further additions were purchased from R. Adams in 1967 and from G. Robinson in 1969 bringing the total size of the cemetery to 7 acres. Records do not exist for the old section that was in use from 1865 to 1896, nor for most of the plots up to period 1935 to 1940. Burial records do exist for most plots after 1935.
