Trundle’s Crossroads Church Cemetery


The cemetery was  given for the use of the Trundles congregation, who maintained and cared for it until they closed. When the property was sold in 1980, the cemetery was deeded to a group of trustees in the community. The first person buried in the cemetery was Louis Wayland in 1871.
