The Shelby Cemetery has been a Linn family meeting point for years. Frank Linn and his son Les were each caretakers of the cemetery and members of its leadership board. Franklin was responsible for building the pond at the entrance to the cemetery. The bench next to the pond was constructed as a memorial to Les. The main Linn plot, where Jacob and Hester are buried along with many of their children, is immediately west of the cemetery office.
