The Butman Township Cemetery is located east of F-97 on Cemetery Road. Many old time residents are buried there. Most of the old records were destroyed when the Cemetery Sexton's house burned down in the early part of the twentieth century.
The township passed a cemetary ordinance along with a set of rules and regulations which are used to operate the cemetery on a regular basis. A copy of this ordinance can be viewed at the cemetery and the township hall. Hard copies can be obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
