A more common name for Mound Prairie Cemetery is Greenlief and some call it Bear Grove. It is a two acre plot that was first deeded as a cemetery the 4th of June 1878. William C. Greenlief and his wife Emma A. Greenlief sold this land to the Trustees of Mound Prairie Twonship. In 1878 the cemetery was platted and there could have been as many as forty burials here. The cemetery was first walked in 1978 when more of the stones existed and were readable.
