BARNES RESERVE CEMETERY

This hallowed ground is the final resting place for many early settlers of Madison. Founded in 1874, it was used until early 1900. Here lie Madison's founder, Henry Mitchell Barnes, first generation Americans, Civil was veterans, pioneers, and many children who didn't survive to adulthood because of primitive medical care.

This marker is a tribute to people of all walks of life who made sacrifices and endured hardships of pioneer days that future generations might remember their heritage.
