Buffington Cemetery


Buffington/French Cemetery Farrington, Twp. From Mt. Vernon go out old state Rt. 15 to the Harmony/Marlow Road turn left to go to Harmony turn right on Silence Rd. (1925) it is the road right before you get to the Harmony Church. Stay on this road until it comes to a curve to the right you can also turn left but there is no stop sign and I wouldn't call it a T. When you go thru the curve the road name changes to Duner Lane (2150) stay on this road it will curve to the left and the name changes to E.Pinecone Rd. (1900N) then you will turn right on N. Duke Lane (2150) this road will curve to the left and then it will curve to the right. As soon as you go thru the right curve the old house sits on the left it has a grown up drive way it will be the first place you come to but it is hard to see because of the weeds. When you get out behind the house there is an old barn to the right and an old Chicken Coop? back off to the left you will have to walk a bit before you see the chicken coop. The cemetery is behind it.
