Mr. Orendorff selected this site for this cemetery soon after coming to this country in 1827, and afterwards was the first person buried here. He gave as his reason for choosing this spot that it was the highest point near the timber in this vicinity and a large and tall oak tree standing here at that time was a conspicuous land mark that could be seen for miles from any direction the surrounding the prairie
