BOOHER CEMETERY          A.K.A.  Summit Cemetery

Catalogued May 10, 1975 by Viola Busy Beavers 4-H Club under the direction of  Mrs. Virginia McCauley and reviewed May 22, 1975 by H. A. Dieter. Located in a densely wooded area about 80 rods north of the former Olaf Dalberg farm residence, section 11, Town of Forest. The farm has, since the County plat of 1972 had a change of ownership, since the death of Mr. Dalberg, to one Roger Johnson. Follow County Trunk MM 2.5 miles north of Wis. 56. The cemetery was listed as such in the County plat of 1895, together with the Summit U. B. Church now no longer standing. Size and position of this burial site would, at present, qualify it as a plot, only, considering the small number of stones now visible. The two Booher stones are standing while the Hess slab type marker lies flat nearby. There is presently no access to the burial spot, save for following a field fence line running east and west within about 40 feet of the graves. There is no apparent indication of other burials. The Booher burials may assuredly be that of father and son, while the name Hess could also be linked to the Booher family. The land containing the plot was owned by Isaiah Booher as per plat of 1895.
