Some of the old cemeteries with burial sites for early Stanton family members are listed here. The intention is not to catalogue all the graves, but perhaps to highlight some of the older cemeteries, and if possible provide links to further data.

Clear Lake Cemetery   Find a Grave

Clear Lake Cemetery was started by James Stanton of Clear Lake on the corner of his farm land. Member of his family, Stanton’s and Kerr’s are buried there. Find a Grave website indicates that there are no family members living in the area. Actually, there are descendants with different last names.

The Cemetery was classified as abandoned and has been taken over by the township. A volunteer committee raised funds to restore the stones and add signage. A re-dedication ceremony was held. Here is a video I made about the process and the event.

To view the list of names and inventory of stones made in 2005 before the restoration visit this page: http://stone-town-gazette.com/cemeteries/clear-lake-cemetery-transcription-of-stones/
