of buriel grounds. Many noteables are interred within, such as:

world prominent artist; Albert Bierstadt, another famous artist; Edward
Zettick, a tailor, of whom there is a lifelike monument erected in this
cemetery; the founder of Cherry & Webb (now known as Cherry Webb &
Touraine) , W. Garrett Cherry.
In this cemetery, we also have a section where Civil War Veterans are interred.
Also, two World War #2 Veterans' Plots and one for the deceased veterans of the
Korean Conflict/Viet Nam Conflict.
There are still several areas yet to develop this cemetery.
