This cemetery is well maintained but is very old.  Many of the stones are difficult to read.  1941 is the last burial date and1875 is the first. It is located .1 miles south of Highway 98 on County Highway Y.  It is on the left next to the Town Hall and garage on Willard Road.  Some old obituaries noted these burials as being next to "Cole's Schoolhouse".

**Our data was obtained from a cemetery walk through by Ken Wood. If you have additions or corrections, please contact us. If you can not find a desired obituary in the ALHN database to verify the entry, you may wish to order a micro-film of a Neillsville newspaper from the time frame you are researching. The available newspapers can be requested from the Wisconsin State Historical through your local library. Please consider submitting any newly acquired items to the ALHN Records Board. If you have a bit of extra time, why not type a few unrelated items as a random act of kindness to future researchers?
