Inscription.  Although burials were made here as early as 1836 it was 1849 before residents of Sashibaw Plains formed Sashabaw Burial Association for purposes of "fencing, improving, ornamenting, and keeping the burying ground ... in proper repair." A center alley was created and the price of lots set at $1.00. The Association meets annually and maintains the cemetery. A sizable addition was authorized in 1949.
