Silent Home Cemetery is in the northwest corner of section 16 in Floyd township, two miles south of Cameron. It is on a good gravel road, (now a good oiled road), but it is entered up a rather steep climb. The cemetery is one of the best kept of the county burying grounds of the county. the ground was deed by Royal Wiswell to the Silent Cemetery Association April 14, 1870, and comprises three acres. Dates on tombstone, however, indicate the plot was used for burial purposes earlier than that date.

The oldest stone in Silent Home cemetery seems to be that of W. C. Whitman, one of the early residents of Cameron community, who passed away in 1835. A number of stones in this , as in other cemeteries are broken down or eroded so that names and dates often are illegible. One stone appears to record the death of one Alered N., son of W-----, died September 1837. (Too bad it cannot be better identified.) Other stones record the deaths of Sophronia, daughter of John and Adah Murdock, 1840; William A. Boyden, 1843; David R. Shelton, died and buried at Hazel Grove, Wis., March 16, 1847; Anarday, daughter of J. S. and M. Parker, Aug 9, 1846; other members of the Parker family 1851, 1852 and later; Sarah C. Edwards, Oct 8, 1852; Tullius C. Short, 1854; Levitt Fox, 1856; Clara F. McFarland, 1857; Lydia, wife of J. Abbott, 1858.

Other names of persons who have been prominent in the community include: Lewis Vertrees, one of the early settlers who died in 1883, and his two wives, Martha J., died 1857, and Loveease, died 1879, Royal and Matthew Wiswell and their families; Elder Samuel T. Shelton, former member of the State Legislature, who died in 1892; D. C. Graham, prominent farmer and also former State legislator, who died 1905; Jeremiah McFarland, who came to this county from Kentucky with Peter Butler in 1829 and died in 1873; Robert H. Riggle, long time teacher and resident of Cameron who die din 1829; and W. G. Whiteman, 1853; former Sheriff John W. Bolon;' Harmon E. Haley; Adison Means and his wife Cerena Means Beers, Elias Hart, Chris B. Mills, H. C. Allingham, Temple, Devoss, McCool, E. W. Squires, Atkinson Gay, Schussler, Odell, Hinchey, Robley, Short, Milward, O'Riley, Bryant, Kindon, Sayles, Kelley, Edwards, Marsh, Mellott, McGahey, etc.
