Cass Cemetery

"Blue Grass"

The first ground consecrated to the burial of the dead in Raymond Township was on the farm belonging to John Cass. The first interments were made in the 1830’s. The cemetery is located south of Raymond on the Merrill Wernsing farm. There is no direct access to the site as a former township road that led to the cemetery was abandoned years ago. At least 12 soldiers are buried there including veterans of the War of 1812, John Cass and A.C. Cass, veterans of the Black Hawk War, Jessie Mitts, co. C Whiteside Brigade, and J.T. Lawler, Sgt, Co. F, Mo. Vol. Inf., Martha Swallow is also buried at this cemetery. She was the first school teacher in the area having taught children of pioneers at her farm home.
