Ashland Twp, T12N R2W Sec 19

Contributed by Jeff Curtis, Nov 09, 2006 [jefftcurtis@earthlink.net]. Total records = 42.

To reach this cemetery from Wakefield, at the intersection of Wakeland Rd. (CR 800W) and Big Hurricane Rd. (CR 300N) drive east on Big Hurricane Road. Just after the road turns right or south after .02 mile, watch for the cemetery on your right or west side of the road.

The cemetery is in a field beyond a gate on the right. At the gentle curve in the road, walk south 0.01 mile to the edge of a ravine. An unmarked grass lane off of Big Hurricane Road leads to the cemetery. There is a gate blocking the lane, but a new lane has been created as people have driven around the gate. A nice turnaround has been mowed at the cemetery, which is about 100 yards back from Big Hurricane Road.

This is an inactive private cemetery, which appears not to have had a burial since about 1912. It is well maintained.

I visited and walked this cemetery on Nov 04, 2006. I compared my work with that of Janet and Carl Cowen completed in April of 1968.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
