Additional Information about this cemetery was contriubuted by: Kim

The Cemetery was also know as Edelers Cemetery, as it was on their farm property.
My Great grandfather was buried there at one time, but later moved (along with four of his children) to Kenosha Greenridge after the death of his wife. The move took place in May of 1928.
His name was August Manthei and his farm was north of the cemetery on Old Town Line Road (Willow Road). August was married to Emma Brandt (Rickmeier). One of their daughters, 10 year old Rosa, was buried there in 1893. Three of their other children, Olga (5), Arwin (1), and Hilda (3) all died of the "Black Dyptheria" in 1896 within 2 weeks of each other and were also buried there.
