See the Columbus Democrat, May 24, 1872. The upper portion of the present cemetery was laid out in 1846. the land was given to the township by Mrs. Lewis Ludington and was surveyed by Mr.James T. Lewis (later govenor of Wisconsin) and Squire Topplif. Many additions followed over the years. Squire Allen was the first burial in 1845. Many of the early burials are unmarked. In 2005 there are over 6600 burials on record.
