MCDONOUGH UNION VILLAGE CEMETERY
Copyright @ Cindy DeForest. All Rights Reserved.
The McDonough Union Cemetery is located on the hill in back of the Methodist Church.
The first plot of land was given to the town for this by John Fiske Hill and a society was
formed and incorporated in the 1960's. Since that time it has become necessary to
purchase additional land on the north from the estate of Aderesta Lewis. Mrs. Lewis
was one of the organizers of the Ladies Cemetery Association and also the first
President of same. Through the help of this association, many improvements were
made such as the iron seats placed abut the cemetery and the fence at the approach
of the hill. To the north of the church a small plot of ground was willed by Mrs. Lewis
to the association and there the vault was built.
