A half-mile southwest of Kentuckytown, the Weber brothers, Jacob and Joseph, established their family burial plot at the site of their longtime successful grist mill and homes. But about fifty years ago a grass fire destroyed the fence surrounding the few graves, and the stakes or markers disappeared in the fire or into the soft earth. As the wooded area became cleared of trees and brush, the spring at the site continued for a time to feed the well that was dug and curbed there. But after a tenant house at the spring-well was removed and the land brought under cultivation, the well was eventually filled. Then the canebrake at the marsh spot disappeared along with evidences of the cemetery. Today it is all an open field. Though there were likely more than four graves in the cemetery, the only known ones were those of the two brothers and their wives. The few descendants who remained in this area were buried in the nearby Vittitoe Cemetery.
