Cemetery History: The Townsend Cemetery was founded in 1872 by Noah and
Sarah Townsend at the death of their infant daughter, Martha Jane, who
was born February 9, 1872 and died when she was ten days old. There
were no cemeteries near at that time. A fence was kept around the grave
until later, the founders gave one acre of land to be used for a family
cemetery. Since that time, many people have been buried there, friends
and relatives of the family.
Noah and Sarah Townsend were the parents of eleven children, two of whom
still survive. They are Mrs. Mollie V. Stegall of Hawthorne and Mr.
Thomas J. Townsend of Gainesville. Two sons, Columbus and John, and two
daughters, Martha Jane and Josephine, are buried in this cemetery. Four
other sons are Joel, who is buried at Palatka, Asa, who is buried at
Wauchula, James at Hicoria, Florida and Robert at Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Noah Townsend died in October 1891, and Sarah died in December 1904, so
this property passed on to their youngest daughter, Mrs. Mollie Stegall.
It remained legally hers till in the late part of 1952, she made a deed
for two acres to the Townsend Cemetery Association which has been
organized since 1949.
