  This is also called the Whitacre Cemetery, as it is located on the old Reason Whitacre farm. It's very pretty there, still today. Reason has both wives buried on either side of him. The Sugar Grove Cemetery was opened in 1841, and the first person buried there was Hanna Whitacre, eldest daughter of  Reason. Her stone reads Feb 15, 1840.

The Sugar Grove Church and Sugar grove School were also located on the Reason Whitacre Farm. The church was established here in 1840. A meeting house was built on the east side of the Reason Whitacre farm, which stood until the fall of 1894 when it was moved to Jerry City. Most of the seventy members  were formerly members of the Sugar Grove Society.
