About the fund
Established by the East Rush Cemetery Association to assist with the expenses of managing the East Rush Cemetery.
From the Donor:
East Rush Cemetery Association Endowment Fund
My reason for establishing the East Rush Cemetery Association Endowment Fund was to make sure there was a perpetual income to the association for the upkeep of the cemetery without having to worry about making a payment or burdening my family to continue the payments when I’m no longer here.
Brief History of the East Rush Cemetery Association
On February 3, 1911, the heirs of Mrs. Chloe Roberts sold about one acre of land for $40 to the original directors of the cemetery association. Although the cemetery association was formed in 1911, there are gravestone markers from the mid to late 1800’s in the East Rush Cemetery.
The directors and officers of the cemetery association meet the first Sunday in May of each year at 2 p.m. in the East Rush church basement. The public is invited to attend this meeting.
Donations and the sale of lots provide the funds to mow and maintain the cemetery. Some of the maintenance is done by volunteers.
