American Fork, Utah ~ Pioneer Cemetery

The American Fork Pioneer Cemetery was used for burials from 1852 – 1868.  We know the names of 83 of the pioneers buried there.  The cemetery contains additional burials of some Native Americans and possibly a few additional pioneers.

In memory of Memorial Day 2012, I stopped by the cemetery and took photos of the memorial and its associated plaques and lists of burials. 

A full transcription of the plaques is found below:

This spot served as a burial ground for the pioneers of American Fork from 1852 to 1868. When death came to the village the bodies were prepared for burial and the graves dug by friends and relatives. Some Indians were buried here.

Listed on Placques are names of pioneers buried here.

About lineagekeeper

By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
