Eden Valley Cemetery
The Woman's Club started development of the cemetery in 1920.
The deed to 40 acres was granted in 1926. They paid $1.25 per
acre. Originally family members and volunteers cared for the
cemetery grounds. Many hauled water from their homes to water
County funds enable the board to hire a caretaker to maintain
the cemetery. Eventually most of the old footings were removed, grass planted,
and a sprinkler system installed. Recently the cemetery has been
enlarged and new trees and shrubs planted. The first person to
be buried in the cemetery was a one month old baby of Lou and Emma
Sims. The tiny grave lies in the northeast corner of the
cemetery list was compiled from grave
sights, newspaper obituaries and personal journals. The
cemetery list is in Acrobat Reader format.
