Harder Cemetery, April 1999


            Harder Cemetery is one of the oldest on Cedar Creek as evidenced by the number of above-ground cut stone burial cairns. The cemetery is well maintained and in current use. Most burials here are either unmarked or unidentified. Some fieldstones identify burials. If they remain readable it may be difficult to do so. Best time to read fieldstones would be late afternoon when the sun shines directly on their west faces on at mid-day in December when the sun is low on the horizon and shines across them making shadows in the surviving lettering. Notes below indicated which fieldstones were read under ideal light in 1988 and which were read in 2004.

            Leo and David Donahue recorded Harder Cemetery November 25, 1988, and December 29, 1988. David Donahue checked and updated the cemetery September 11, 2004. This cemetery also was recorded in 1977 by Bonnie K. Harder of Linden. Her record appears as Harder, Bonnie K, "Harder Cemetery," The River Counties, Vol. 6, No. 3, July 1977, pp. 165-169. This is referred to several times in the notes below.
