Cemetery History

For years this was an unkempt cemetery on the east side of the road, two and a half miles north of St. Joe. No name was known for it. Later it was thought to be the Weise cemetery - based most likely on a land owners name. An obituary called it the Antioch Cemetery. The condition of the site changed when Keith Neuway started taking care of it in the 1980's. Today you will find a visitor's register in the box attached to the flag pole. Thanks to Keith and all that help him mow and maintain it!
