You may have heard of the old riddle, “Who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb?” The correct response, of course, is that there are two people who are entombed there — President Grant and his wife Julia.

The local equivalent might be this — Who’s buried in Mansfield Cemetery? Thousands, of course. As it turns out, a number of people are buried there who have some claim to fame, at least locally. Those certainly include business leaders, prominent educators, and the like — but so are some names with regional or national significance.

Mansfield Cemetery sits in the city of Mansfield a bit south and east of downtown. Established in 1845, it sits on land (the first 20 acres) Benjamin Johns. Its articles of association date from 1847, which as also the date of the first internment there.
