Guernsey Cemetery

 

Guernsey Cemetery is located in Lee Township (southwest quarter of Section 16) on the right-hand side of Route 9 going in a westerly direction, close to Manley.  It's up on a hill over-looking Route 9.  As you can tell by the picture below (taken in the early spring of 2004), this cemetery has been abandoned.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if some kind person would maintain this forgotten cemetery?  There are quite a few stones that have fallen and are half buried in the ground. It also looks like some stones have been removed from this cemetery. Update: Byron and Kathryn Palmer has restored this cemetery in 2006! How wonderful that you all have done such a fine service for the community! See the gallery for the new pictures!
