History:
From "History of DeKalb County Cemeteries" by Dorothy A. Ditmars, April 18, 1924.
    This cemetery is not so large and is located five miles east of Auburn.  Many worthy people are buried here, who shared in our life trials.

At a Civil War Round Table, the question was asked if the President knew anything about the Cosper Cemetery Monument located in DeKalb County.  He said that he had heard "A collection had been taken up and given to a gentleman to purchase plaques to place on the large monument to honor the soldiers buried in the cemetery.  The gentlemen took off with the money instead of placing the order.  The plaques were never purchased."   From R. Wells
