The Sumterville Cemetery is located at the intersection of highways CR 471 and SR 301 in Sumterville, Florida on the East side of CR 471. The entrance is on the South side of the garage. Some of the headstones there are made of old concrete and some are hard to read and a few are completely illegible. At the time of inventory, there were 414 gravesites that could be accounted for. According to one of the caretakers, there are some gravesites marked with plain rocks (as we noticed) so the total count will be higher than noted.
The older section is located on the north of the entrance road and the new section is on the south side.
One of the more significant plots was dedicated to the honor of Sumter County’s first casualty of the Vietnam War. John T. Hensley, Co. B. 28th Infantry – 1st Infantry Division by the John T. Hensley Chapter No. 96 of the Disabled American Veterans.
