Crescent Cemetery - Crescent Township

This cemetery is located just north of the intersection of G 36 and Highway 183, on the east side of the road. It is marked with a small sign at the entrance. Section "F" seems to be the oldest part of the cemetery, with burials dated 1864, 1866, 1867 & 1869. It is said some of the oldest are of Mormons traveling through to Utah.

The cemetery is on a hillside and some of it has been "tiered" because of the slope of the hill. It is attractive with trees and shrubs, is well kept and an active cemetery.
