Mary Baxter was the first wife of George Baxter. Mary died November 29, 1849, at the age of 19 years, according to the dates recorded on the tall Baxter monument. Smaller individual stones are located near the monument.
Elmwood Cemetery was restored and gravestones were repaired in 1995 by Henry and Loekie Boersma. The Baxter family monument was restored to its original upright position by using special equipment and lots of hard work. The fence and cemetery sign were donated by Henry and Loekie Boersma.
Elmwood Cemetery is now maintained by Tallmadge Township.
