     There are four graveyards in Greenbush Township. The Greenbush Graveyard is located on the southwest corner of the northeast quarter of section six. The first grave in this yard was that of John W., infant son of Rowland and Julia A. Simmons. He was buried there in 1832.     

     The Holeman graveyard is located on the northeast quarter of section fourteen. The first grave in this yard was that of Priscilla, wife of Daniel Holeman, who died November 28, 1846.

     The Bond graveyard is located on the southwest quarter of section eighteen. The first grave in this yard was that of Isabelle Long.

     The McMahill graveyard is located on the southwest quarter of section nineteen. The first grave in this yard was that of Elizabeth, daughter of William and Mary McMahill. She died in March, 1849.

     A short distance west of the Greenbush graveyard, across the creek, on the premises once known as the Isaac Butler place, there are several graves, although there is nothing there now that would indicate that it had ever been used as a burying ground. Some of the old settlers think there are about 20 graves there; some think there are more than this number. It is claimed by some persons that John Sheffield, who was killed about the year 1837, was buried there; also that the wife of Samuel Ritchie, who was burned to death; the wife of Bazel Lewis, and some of the Perkins family were buried there.

     There is a grave on a hill, a short distance west of Avon, and north of the road leading to Pumpkin Hollow. The footstone is standing yet, but the headstone is lying broken on the grave. It has this inscription; 

           "Jefferson, son of J. & J. Hill died November 16, 1856; aged 17 years, 8months, and 27days."

     There are also some lost graves on section 23, on the hill east of Pumpkin Hollow, north of the road, on pasture lands owned by Simon Sailer.
