Raver Cemetery

The OES visited Raver Cemetery on July 30, 2007. Raver Cemetery is located on top of a small hill just north of Waterloo Eastern Road in Violet Township. It can easily be missed if you do not know exactly where the cemetery is as most of the cemetery is not at road level. There were only a few tombstones standing and some of those were illegible, but others were in fair condition. There are likely many unmarked burials as tombstones fell and/or were removed over time. Historical records indicate the earliest known burial took place at Raver Cemetery in 1821 and the last burial was in 1901. There is at least one Civil War veteran buried at the cemetery.
