This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Directions:
Go south of Roachdale on Co Rd 250E for two miles to Co Rd 1100N. Turn right and follow 1100N west about 2 1/2 miles to Meridian Line Road. Turn left on Meridian Line Road and go south about mile. There is a large cultivated field to the right (west). Go west into this field about 1/2 mile to the extreme west edge of the field. The cemetery is just north of the field in some woods, just before a ravine.
Condition: Poor
Cemetery is on a bluff between a field and a ravine. There are mature trees in the area, some of which should probably be cut. Many stones need to be reset. Most stones are in good condition, but there are a few that have been broken. There is a pile of pieces which consists of at least two, possibly more, different stones
The number at the left of each name corresponds with the map of the cemetery.
