Thank you to all who have unselfishly 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.
The various categories below contain listings and some donated photos.
Many of the burials listed show where our ancestors were laid to rest in Pine Lake Cemetery.

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
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 the 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.

Donated and researched surnames from obituaries and family files

January 2009 - We commenced inputting this donated and researched alphabetical listing on line.
If you have older or newer burials you would like to contribute, please let us know.
Many of the listed burials as of January, 2009 are from the Gretchen Tyler collection of modern day obits.
Please note on the alphabetical listings of burials, the left hand column is the burial listing. Names were only placed there when I could locate either obit,
tombstone photo or other data stating the person was buried in Pine Lake Cemetery. This is why you will see husbands and wives listed in additional info column,
if I did not have documentation or notification of burial of spouse.
