Unknown Cemetery in Sec. 14
Can you identify this cemetery?

Unknown Cemetery, Section 14

This cemetery is located in Mississippi township, section 14 on the old Taylor farm property. Only has about 8 to 10 graves. It is well maintained. The people that rent the farm, Tim Kanallakan, care for it. The township supervisors have no idea of what it is called. Marty Crull has searched all Histories and cannot find the name of this cemetery. Can anyone help? Contact Judy Griffin.
