Historical Marker
     This rural graveyard began when Alabama native Jefferson L. Wheeler and his second wife, Hannah, buried their daughter, Vina (b. 1864), here in 1875. Vina died in a hunting accident. The Wheelers later donated an acre which included Vina's burial site to the surrounding community to be used as a neighborhood burying ground. The cemetery remains active and is maintained by the Wheeler Cemetery Association. Within this graveyard are the grave sites of numerous area pioneer families and veterans of conflicts ranging from the Civil War to the Korean Conflict.
