Cemetery History

The Bendle Cemetery was established in the early 1800s, and is operated by Clayton Township. It is an active cemetery and inquiries should be directed to the Township Clerk. The cemetery is well-maintained and evokes nostalgia with so many large trees amid the headstones. The u-shaped driveway provides easy access to the entire cemetery.

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.
