Sandy Branch Cemetery

Burials submitted by Barb Moksnes

The cemetery property was once owned by Jonathan and Elizabeth Webb Arnold.
It was a rest stop area for travelers. One day, someone died there, and
they needed a place to bury him, so they buried him right on the property.
In 1887, Jonathan and Elizabeth's son, Wesley deeded the State five acres to
become the Sandy Branch cemetery.
