SHADY GROVE CEMETERY

JEFFERSON  TWP  SECTION 6

 

 

 

This Abandoned cemetery is located on land owned by Robert Harting. Charles Hilton

states there was a church established in 18865/1868 across the street from the store

and he believes the graves were of people associated with the church membership.

The church has since burnt down.  He remembers a Brown family plot and believes

there were 4 or 5 burials. He, along with Fred Wynn, remembers 1 or 2 family plots

with picket fences around them.

When walked in 1976 there were three broken headstones and 1 footstone. The

following information is a combination of stone information and information

received from Bill Reedy, and WPA records.
