The cemetery was created by local pioneer George Cornwall after his wife, Phebe, died in 1882. The lichen-crusted dates carved into her white marble headstone indicate Phebe wasn’t quite 32 when she died. Originally, she was buried beside the Cornwall family cabin, Primmer said, but she was relocated after George Cornwall donated the first piece of land for the community burial ground.
