This cemetery is also known as Kendall Cemetery. It is supposed to be the first in Liberty township having been laid out by William Grant. It is located in the north east quarter of S27 T26 R7. It sits on a knoll just north of LaFontaine on county road 450E. First recorded by the Wabash Middle School History club in 1981, it was again updated in 1996.
