Inscription. This cemetery, established in 1810, is the final resting place of many of the founders of Plainfield and Linton Township.

The graves of eighty-nine Civil War soldiers-a number nearly equal to those of veterans involved in all other wars between the War of 1812 and the Vietnam War-indicate the depth of Plainfield's involvement in that conflict.
