Comments: The early Groveland settlers chose a little hill for their cemetery. The first recorded burial was in 1899. The little hill where the cemetery is located belonged to a piece of property the United States Government patented to George M. Johnson in 1907. The property changed hands many times before being deeded to Harry Weber in December,1924. In 1936, a Cemetery Maintenance District was formed. In 1939, Harry and Maude Weber deeded the cemetery ground to the Groveland Cemetery Maintenance District. In 1984, additional land was added to the cemetery.
