From the intersection of Hwy 24 & Blue Mills Road go east 3.2 miles. The cemetery sits on a hill at 24001 Blue Mills Road. The cemetery is in very bad condition with broken stones scattered about.
The Franklins originated from Kentucky, relocating in Jackson County. This cemetery is located in the area of the Old Santa Fe Trail. The earliest burial was in 1845 that of John Franklin a Revolutionary Soldier.
My husband and I along with our good friends Jerry & Nancy Stuart, read this cemetery using a digital camera on Nov 1, 2008. This is a listing of all know graves taken from the tombstones.
