Civil War Veterans in St Clement Cemetery

The St Clement Cemetery is located on Engleman West of Van Dyke. It is the biggest of our area's pioneer cemeteries the first known recorded burial was March 27, 1854. It is possible that there were a few before that date. Over 800 burials date from the nineteenth century and over 1,500 burials prior to1943. There are over 200 veterans buried in St Clement Cemetery. See historian Wesley Arnold's CD of Warren-Center Line Records which has pictures and indexes of all of the old grave stones in both Warren's Union Cemetery and St Clement's Cemetery. These two cemeteries hold most of the remains of the pioneers of Warren. .

There were also local farm burials prior to 1850 but records of these are lost. One house on what was the old River Road has a stone marker.
