From Silver Grove, go .5 miles north/northeast on Chestnut Hill Road or Route 32 until you see a mailbox that has 3735 on it. Turn west on gravel road. The cemetery is about 25 feet from Chestnut Road on the north side of the gravel road.

This is a small cemetery that is in poor condition. There were a lot of trees and overgrowth in the cemetery. There were about 15 unmarked field stones. The cemetery contains of the descendents of the John Rodgers. Some of the people from the Cogle and Staubs families are buried. The oldest headstone was dated 1826.

I walked this cemetery on Apr 19, 2011.

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.
