Red Rock Cemetery

Cemetery2_000The Red Rock Cemetery is set on a small hill in a remote area on Cemetery Road. The Cemetery was created on land donated in 1848 by John Holton, the first settler at Red Rock.  Holton's nephew, Franklin Ford, was in possession of the records, when the papers were lost in a fire that destroyed Franklin's home in 1921. 

Nearly 75 years after the land was donated, the Red Rock Cemetery became a legally constituted entity, through the efforts of eight residents of Red Rock.  Most of the burials in the Red Rock Cemetery were residents of old Red Rock, with the exception of those in the Shephard family plot, who owned a summer vacation home on the Red Rock Camp Grounds.  There is evidence of 33 burials in the cemetery.  Members of families buried in the Cemetery are:
  • George W. & Mary Abbott
