Cemetery Tours

 Founders Cemetery ~ When Jacob Gomber and Zaccheus Beatty platted and founded Cambridge in 1806, they set aside about half an acre. By 1835, the half-acre was full so by purchase of land, the cemetery was quadrupled in size to two. To keep families together when the new City Cemetery opened, a number of bodies were disinterred from Founders and moved. The last known burial at Founders’ was Joseph D. Tingle in 1891.
