Site updated August 25, 2012 - Thank you to Robert Ponda Sr. who helped me with updating this site with the newer burials and sent us these great photos to honor our loved ones Memorial Day weekend 2012.
History : Union Mills Cemetery location - Twp 35 N R3-W
and in Section 9 of Noble Township. This cemetery was established in
1838. Some of the oldest known burials located are: John Ripple died 10
July 1836 at age 39 yrs, Carlton R. Mills died 1 Sept. 1835 age 1 mo.
15 day who was the son of Ed & N. A. Mills and also Sarah
Byrant who's dates show 18 Nov 1839 to 29 Jan 1841, the daughter of
Benjamin and Alfa (Benedict) Bryant.
Section - Several
years back, the Pioneer Cemetery Commission met with the sexton at
Union Mills. Notes and listings were compared and the old DAR listing
incorporated the known burials of the day for an updated list. The
original rows were observed and listings up to the 1980's incorporated
into what appears on this site as "Old Time Burials". Being
Genealogy based, older burials and evidence there of is
our largest concern in the Research and Cemetery Association of La
Porte County. However as a courtesy to those in the area and
living out of town, we have placed the newer 1st and 2nd Addition
listings on line.
