In 1875, the farm where the cemetery is located, was bought by Ephriam Cannon (Don Blake's Great Grandfather). In 1882, he sold 3 acres to Afton Township for $150. It was first known as the Cannon Cemetery and later the name was changed to Afton Township Cemetery. The Northern part ( new Part ) was where the Afton Township School # 3 stood. It was there until in the 1950"s. It was also known as the Cannon School and later known as the Riley School.
 
In October, 2002, Don and Annette Blake walked the cemetery and compiled this list of those buried there. They update this list on a regular basis. We regret any errors that might have been made. In 2007, the DAR donated a directory to the cemetery grounds.
