Grant and Barbara Benton lived just up the road from the Centerville cemetery in the big two story house on the right that is still standing today. This was the Willrich home, owned by the man who initiated the original burial grounds described at site #2. This was supposedly a stage coach stop during the gold rush era many years ago. The Benton’s owned the property surrounding the cemetery and raised Appaloosa horses as a hobby on that land, including what is now the lower (one acre) piece of the cemetery. The Benton’s generously donated this piece of land to the cemetery in the 1970’s. Thank you Grant and Barbara Benton.
