      Knoles Cemetery is a 1 acre cemetery, established around 1889. It was first known as Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. The first documented grave is July of 1890. Irvin Farnworth and Horace Flint started a Seventh Day Baptist/Adventist Church and School attached to the cemetery in 1894. The town center of Linden was one mile to the north. In 1917 the cemetery was renamed Knoles after Martin VanBuren Knoles who patented the 160 acres in 1903 that by accident contained the cemetery, school, church and town center of Linden. The school, church and cemetery were purchased back from him by District #65 School. There are 209 graves in this cemetery with 8 real tombstones. The cemetery was neglected for over 40 years and destroyed. Many tombstones are now missing. In 2011 ground radar identified 209 graves. Knoles Cemetery Restoration Project is trying to restore this cemetery. An attempt is being made to identify the names of those buried in the unmarked graves. Concrete blocks have been set at those without real tombstones.
