Historical Marker
    The China Spring community was originally settled about 1870. It was named for a large grove of chinaberry trees and nearby spring. Burials were first held in family cemeteries. An association was formed by local citizens in 1902 to establish a community burial ground. They purchased the initial tract of five acres. At one time, sheep were used to keep grass trimmed but the experiment failed when they began to stray. An unsual grave is that of Isaac Brock (1787-1909) who lived in three centuries. Many of the area pioneers are buried here.
