Cemetery notes and/or description:
Gore Twp. Location from Mulvane: 1 E.
The original cemetery measured 664' x 742'. The Plat was filed Dec. 8, 1886.

The oldest legible marker is dated 1879.

The first cemetery association was composed of Adam Huffbauer, Erasmus Shull, M D Canady, 11 acres were purchased from Oscar Potter.

Early in 1957, the Mulvane Cemetery and the Littleton Cemetery were made into a district to be funded by a Township Mill Levy. This district became known as the Mulvane-Littleton Cemetery Association. Feb. 16, 1957, five directors were elected: G C Hooten, Pres; Geo Bradfield, Vice-pres; Jessie Long, Sec; and Margaret Conklin. At that time the Township Board granted them $495.07; that was the balance in the cemetery fund at that time.

A water well was soon put down, and with capable caretakers the area has always been beautifully kept.

In May, 1962, 11 acres more were bought from Louie and Minnie Braddy.
