cemetery was first known as Spice Run Cemetery and has burials as early
as the 1840s. In about 1900 the members of the Christian Congregation
Church of which Dr. John L Puckett was pastor, puchased the Spice Run
Cemetery and two acres to be added to the burial ground. The
goal was to provide a free burial place for anyone who needed
it. Therefore, the cemetery was referred to as the Christian
Congregational Cemetery, Pauper's Cemetery, Potter's Field and later as
Puckett Cemetery in honor of Dr John L Puckett. Later the
cemetery was taken charge of by the Center Township Trustee.
There are many unmarked and unknown burials in this cemetery.
