Buckley Chapel Cemetery

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce

Take CR #17 out of Belleville for approximately 4.5 miles. The cemetery will be right along the left side of the road just past Wolf Run Road. This is a small abandoned cemetery that was last used in 1946. The property at one time was owned by the Pryor and Buckley families.

There are two sections to this cemetery, one being up on the hill to the left, about 150 feet. The upper portion is behind where the Buckley Chapel Church sat. The church has been gone for many years. The upper section cannot be seen from the road. The grounds have not been kept for many years, and are overgrown with weeds. Several of the stones in the lower section have fallen over and/or are broken. This is a complete transcription. I first walked and transcribed this cemetery on Aug 3, 2003. I have revisited again on May 23, 2004.
