Last But Not Least - The Cemetery The first
settlers probably buried their dead on some favorite home spot, some around
the Methodist church, and some on the northeast corner of the George Houck
farm. I well remember seeing the monuments. The ground was so
wet they bought a plot from Rudolph Bair, Sr., south of town and across Carnes
Run. Rudolph Bair, Jr., first wife, Catherine, was the first to be
buried there in 1849.
The graves from the church and Houck farm were moved there
some few years ago. Andy Sponohour bought land across the road and
opened up a new plot. Having no official organization, the town got
together, organized and called the cemetery, The White City.
