Often in pioneer days, the only burying ground, in a rural area, was the
Quaker's and so if you lived near that cemetery the family would
probably ask for their deceased to be buried there. You will find many
non-members buried in Cedar Creek Friends Cemetery here in Iowa. Some
of them may have left the faith or attended the church from time to time
but were not members.
