This online index only lists the individual, death date (if known) and reference page. We are creating a master index of everyone who is buried in this county and their burial location to aid researchers. We are especially in need of people buried here who have no stones or whose stones no longer exist. If you have any of this information or if you have additional information for anyone who is buried in this cemetery, please email the Warren County Genealogical Society.

Cemetery History

On private property over hill beyond small lake.  Few stones and all in very poor condition.  One of the oldest cemeteries in the township. Very few stones still exist. Many have been lost, or are buried. Supposedly, a few were at one time crumbled to make a dam for a farm pond. Henry Null who moved to the areas in 1798 (father of Christian and Charles Null) is among those buried in this cemetery. Also see the [Second] Salem Reformed Church Cemetery
