Historical Marker
     This cemetery began in 1870 in the rural community once known as Scruggs. The oldest documented burial was that of Elizabeth Scruggs (1820-1870). Land was donated for a church and graveyard by homesteaders Robert Alexander Craig and his wife Martha Jane Freeland. The cemetery contains more than 100 unmarked graves. Among the graves are those of pioneer settlers, including many children, and veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. The site is maintained by descendants of those buried here and continues to serve the nearby community.
