Some of the first trees planted at the cemetery in the 1800's had to come down. Jim Miller and his workers cut out 4 of them and made the cemetery look much nicer, not to mention safer!                              2013

This Association has been established so that our Cemeteries in Timberhill will always have extra funds to repair and maintain.  The idea is that anyone who wants to add money to this fund (tax exempt),  is guaranteed that none of the original monies is spent and only the interest earned can be used by the Timberhill Township Cemetery board.  This board is elected by the Timberhill Township people.  Records will be kept on these funds and be available at all times!

This fund was set up by Bill Danley.  So far this Association has collected $23,457.26  which is in a money market earning 2.0% interest.  We have earned $2,883.17 in interest.  This is not much but it is the best we can do in this economy! Of this interest money we have spent $1994.00 for clearing out dead trees and on the fence and Flags. We still have about $1354.17 for other improvements probably next year!  The starting money and any other added monies will be re invested in a money market and will again be working for us.  This will go on to the end of time!!  A perpetual way to fund the cemetery maintenance.

In 2009 we got a new flag pole and Flag!! Then we removed the dying trees in the front of the cemetery and ground down the stumps to  replace them with a white fence. 

In 2010 we Placed Flags at the Veterans Grave site and two benches were placed at the Flag pole.

This was done in 2009.  Click Here       Click here for improvements made in 2010

The money will be spent on stones straightened, stones replaced, lettering replaced, new trees planted, old trees removed, Flag & Pole, etc, etc.  We can not foresee what all the money will be needed for.

Over Memorial weekend 2009 -  $ 250.00 was collected from sales of Catalogs and DVD  

NEW DEVELOPMENT

This year a PVC pipe was placed at each known Veterans Grave Site and flags will be placed on Patriotic holidays. 

 Kathy Cozier,   Grace Myers and   Mary Benbrook!!

Then just this last month we heard from a Karen Sue Johnson-Heber.  Her and her husband go around the country and help cemeteries get organized.  She is doing a wonderful service and has taken photos of all the stones in the cemetery and is now pulling the data together into a data base.  This information will be a lot of help to all of us!  Thank you!
