Dunlap Cemetery

Dunlap Cemetery is so called because it is located on property once owned by the Chauncy Dunlap family.  It was originally known as the Johnson Cemetery.  Dr. Ransom Johnson originally purchased land in 1812.  On September 23, 1896 the property was deeded by Useba Johnson, third wife of Dr. Ransom Johnson, to the Vienna Township Trustees for burial purposes.  This historic cemetery contains the remains of Johnson family members, neighbors, and patients.

The first known burial was Tryphena Williams in 1820.  The last known burial was Sarah (Kennedy) Southard in 1910.  No new burials are permitted. 

The cemetery is maintained by Vienna Township.  The other Vienna Township-maintained cemeteries are Doud Cemetery and Vienna Township Cemetery.
