Jonas Liter laid out this burial ground on May 22, 1869. Deed Record 34, page 272, dated March 1, 1885, describes the cemetery as containing two acres. Deed Record 45, page 87, shows that on Oct. 17, 1889, a lane to the cemetery was deeded to the Liter Cemetery trustees, the purchase price being $56.00.

Directions: This cemetery is located outside of Litterberry, which is off Rte. 78 on the Literberry Triopia Road. Go through Litterberry and about 1/2 mile outside of the town on the Literberry Prentice Road, turn left or north and go 0.5 mile on the Literberry Cemetery Road until it comes to a "T" road. turn right or east at the "T" and drive 0.1 mile to a grassy lane. There is a wooden sign that marks the lane. Turn left on to the grassy lane and drive 0.3 miles to the cemetery. It is well maintained except that there is a pile of broken stones and an assortment of footstones which appear to be next to a burning pile.

Thanks to Jeanie Lowe for the above photos & directions.
