The Cooksville Cemetery Association is seeking funds to help maintain and improve the village’s historic cemetery. Some of the proposed cemetery projects include improvements to the roadway path, removal or maintenance of old trees, and cleaning and care of old gravestones.
The Cemetery is an important part of the historic Village of Cooksville. Many of Cooksville’s early settlers and Town of Porter pioneers, some born in the 18th century, lie at rest in the old Cemetery beneath weathered marble headstones and granite memorials.
