The first funeral in Raymond was for Mrs. Leone Rythers around 1883. The burial was on a hill south of Raymond. It wasn’t until 1888 that a burial was made in what is now the Prairie Valley Cemetery. This was Ferdinand Schoepp’s eight-month old daughter, Ella Louise. In 1890, his wife, Minnie was buried. The cemetery was surveyed and platted by James M. Raymond, County Surveyor in 1899.
