COUMBE CEMETERY

Catalogued  May 1, 1975 by H. A. Dieter. Located on the present C. F. Chitwood farm three fourths mile west of Junction Wisconsin 60 and County Trunk X in section 35, Town of Richwood. Turn north one-half mile to cemetery. The name gives honor to the first family to settle in this area, John and Sarah Coumbe. The grounds are in fair condition
but with many unidentified graves and several broken markers. The first known burial was in 1853. The locale clearly identifies with the early migration from the south to the Wisconsin River area stretching northward.
