Crescent Cemetery

Crescent Cemetery is located in Section 24, Crescent Township, just north of the intersection of G 36 and Highway 183, on the east side of the road. The entrance is marked. It is up and down the hill and some have been “tiered” because of the slope of the hill. It is attractive with trees and shrubs, well kept and active.

Section “F” appears to be the oldest part of the cemetery, with burials dating 1864, 1866, 1867 and 1869. It is said some of the oldest burials are that of the Mormons who traveled through the area on their way to Utah.
