This active cemetery is located on Racine Avenue (Highway Y) where the Racine Avenue ramp goes onto Highway 15, Section 32, New Berlin Township.
Sunnyside Cemetery was established circa 1841, the date of the earliest known burial. Land for the cemetery was donated by Reverend Rufus Cheney in an area called Prospect Hill. The Sunnyside Cemetery Association began in 1887.
There are cemetery records 1841-date. Records are a card file by name which includes
birth and death dates from existing tombstones. There is a map of the cemetery.
Records are not open to the public for research, but you may call or write for
