The first portion of the current cemetery was purchased in 1918 and comprised 3.12 acres of land sold to Saint Henry for $468.00 by Victor and Viola Kingsbury. In 1962, Saint Henry acquired another 1.15 acres adjoining the original portion from Catharine Frassel for less than $100. The last portion of the cemetery, approximately 2.89 acres, was purchased in November 1971 from Fred and Grace Tozer. Today, Saint Henry Cemetery encompasses 7.16 acres of land, of which only a portion is platted and being used for burials.
