Brief history: This cemetery was started in August 1856 when the "Old City Cemetery" became too small. Pine Lake Cemetery Association
dates back to 1858 when the first known burial took place. The Old City Cemetery, on the West edge of town, closed for the most part in the 1870's,
after both Pine Lake and Patton Cemetery had been established. A newspaper article dated 23 March 1893, provided a list of names of those still
buried in the Old City Cemetery.   It offered relatives a chance to relocate their deceased loved ones to the cemetery of their choice. Those that weren't claimed were
moved in 1893 and are now buried in a mass grave in  Pine Lake Cemetery. When the remains of those buried in the old cemetery were removed to
Pine Lake Cemetery, 499 bodies and many tombstones could not be identified.

Thank you to all who gave of their time and talent to accumulate these listings, studies and photographs.
Please keep in mind that this is an expansive cemetery.
Although we do not have all the burials, we strongly feel that we have a large representation of family surnames of those laid to rest here.
March 2015 - In the last several months I studied and combined many of the previous listings done and placed them in alphabetical order.
