The deaths in the early 1820’s resulted from  a decision the  pioneers made to not burn off the grass in the autumn and as a result it became wet and thick, creating the breeding ground for diseases, such as malaria.

Bigelow Cemetery has also been called Boerger/Burger or Weaver Cemetery. Plain City was once called Weaver town , Bigelow town and now Plain City. The cemetery sits just south of the Union County line in Pike Township in Madison co. Ohio.  West  from Plain City on Rt. 161 on Weaver Rd or Rosedale Rd.
