BEAR VALLEY CEMETERY

Copied by H. A. Dieter on October 22, 1974. Located in Buena Vista Twsp., S. 11 east of Wis. Hwy. 130 and Co. Tr. B. It is a church yard cemetery of the Little Brown Church built in 1875. The first known burial was of one Benj. Dixon, who died June 21, 1845. The cemetery now has over 400 burials, is fairly well kept and does appear to be in use for a long time to come. The first leading families were Burnham, Carswell and Dixon. Locally this is know as The Brown Church Cemetery. Local citizens expect to observe a centennial in 1975. There are twenty known war veterans buried here. Five do not have monument, however them are presently identified by military records.
