J.O. Riley donated the land for the burial grounds, and the following people all paid $50 or $100 for their membership in the association:

John Biddle
Joseph Bolen
Dureela Brady
Merill Brady
Mrs. Brady
William Douglass

Simon Hornaday
John Little
W.J. Maddox
Amos McCormick
Samuel McCormick
Isaac Petty
Nathan Petty
A.F. Shirts

The election of their trustees was held at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Cartersburg.

NOTE: According to the Plainfield library's Hendricks County cemeteries index, Spring Hill Cemetery in Liberty Township (north of Cartersburg) is also known as Guynn Cemetery or Moon Cemetery.
