Buckeye Cemetery

 

Buckeye Cemetery is located in Section 5 of Cass Township. If you are going in a westerly direction on Route 9 out of Canton, go past Fiatt until you reach Highway 2.  Turn left on Highway 2 and continue south until you see Buckeye church on the right. The cemetery is behind the church. Many thanks to the person who takes such good care of this cemetery!
