1. Fraim-Flippin Cemetery
This cemetery was also known historically as Flippin Cemetery. The first burials here were of the Flippin Family. Among the death certificates recorded for burials here since 1911 when state record-keeping began, we find both “Fraim Cemetery” and “Flippin Cemetery” listed as the place of burial. John M. Fraim was buried here as an in-law of the Flippin Family. His fame as a local favorite son and subsequent tradition-memory eventually imbued the cemetery with his alternate namesake, now publicly identified as Fraim Cemetery.
