PRAIRIE SPRINGS CEMETERY

The Historical Marker at Prairie Springs Cemetery reads as follows: “Associated for many years with the Prairie Springs Methodist Episcopal Church, South, this cemetery dates to 1866 when the infant grandson of R. W. Berry was buried here. Berry formally deeded land for the graveyard in 1880, although several other burials took place here before that time. The Prairie Springs Church moved to the town of Ben Wheeler (2 miles), in 1895, but title to the cemetery was not formally transferred to the Prairie Springs Cemetery Association until 1949. The large graveyard is the burial ground for many of the area’s pioneers and their descendants.”

This cemetery is located on State Hwy. 64 east of Canton, near the community of Ben Wheeler. This writer found thirty-nine veteran graves, six of those being CSA veterans.
