Cook's Cedar Glade Cemetery

The first burial at this location was in 1918 during the 'Spanish' flu epidemic.  In 1928 Henry Cook homesteaded 160 acres including the graveyard.  In 1930 he fenced off the cemetery and it has been in active use since that time.  Burials are limited to those related to the early residents of Sedona or their descendants.  Sedona Schnebly, the town's namesake, and her husband Theodore Carl and their daughter Pearl are buried here.  The cemetery is now owned and maintained by the Sedona Historical Society.

My late husband's Grandparents and their son are buried in this cemetery. We visited the graves long long ago. My husband's Grandparents were James Andrew Jackson, us Uncle, Frank Jackson, and double cousin Wes Jackson had Indian Gardens Market. My husband Jimmy Lee Jackson was born in Big Park in a home, in 1940. I just went and gathered information on the family to add to the family album. Thank you for preserving this cemetery. Both my husband's grandparents homesteaded in Sedona. His maternal grandparents homestead was where the Ridge is now.
