(AKA Bill Bradley Cemetery)
Madison County, Ohio
Located atop a hill on private property, Bradley Cemetery is abandoned and in very poor condition with only a few stones still standing. We spoke to the lady who lives on the property and she told us that the cemetery was originally called the Bill Bradley Graveyard/Cemetery. She had lived in the original homestead until a few years ago when a new house was built just yards away. Looking at the old house it is easy to see that over the years additions were built and the house was modernized over time. Today it stands, like the cemetery, abandoned and delapidated.
I would like to be able to report that the photographs on this page represent a complete inventory of this cemetery, but we saw too much evidence of stones broken and flat on the ground, covered with dirt and vegetation. We did uncover and photograph a few of the hidden stones. However, we didn't have the time or the necessary tools to locate and clear more stones. If the cemetery is ever restored additional stones will most certainly be unearthed.
We took several photos of the cemetery from different angles and there is one that I took as soon as a gravestone became visible on our climb to the cemetery.
