William Eldridge donated Land for the cemetery. [William Matheson oral history] According to the original agreement, the land was purchased from William Eldridge, and he became a member of the non-profit corporation. There were burials prior to 1892, some by the church west of the cemetery, and at Hadlock at a place called “dead man’s gulch.” These graves were moved to the Greenwood Cemetery after its formation. It is currently a corporation.
