  1. I was wondering if you have any of the history of this cemetery. I’ve found the will of Thomas Harris, a Revolutionary War veteran, who designated in his will that some of his farm be set aside for a cemetery for not only his family but for any of the neighbors who needed a place to bury their dead. According to stories, Mr. Harris’ family cemetery became the Independence Cemetery. Thomas Harris and his wife are buried here, as well as his daughter Elizabeth (no stone) and her husband, John Ragan. These are my 2nd (John and Elizabeth Ragan) and 3rd (Thomas and Martha Harris) grand-parents.
