Bethel Cemetery - Newburg Township - Index: L - P

Divider Line
Located in the SE corner of the NE 1/4 of section 2 Newburg Township. It is old but well kept and still in use. It surrounds the old Bethel Church and overlooks the Burlend country so well known in the history of the county. Burials date back to 1837. Initial reading done 13 June 1975 by Mr. & Mrs. Guy Gray and Mr. & Mrs. W.C. Lewis. Burial dates only are from Mrs. Gladys Turnbull, Secretary. Additional information as found is provided by myself. I have received information that the road is now paved - County Road #14 between Detroit and Griggsville.
"The Dead of Winter"
Painting by John Skelton
Permanently displayed at The Skinner House in Griggsville IL
