Gravestone Photographs

Dennison Chapel Cemetery, in rural Fairfield Township, is located about 9.6 miles southwest of the intersection of E. Main (US 40) and Walnut Street in West Jefferson. To reach the cemetery follow marked route (in green) on the map through West Jefferson Village to West Jefferson-Kiousville Road (County Road 22). Watch for a road sign showing a sharp right turn followed by a sharp left. The cemetery is on the west side of the road in the middle of the second curve (see map 2). This is an active cemetery and there was evidence of recent interments. The cemetery is well kept though there is evidence of minor vandalism. The gravestones in the section to the right of the gate seem to be the oldest in the cemetery. The photographs listed below represent a small fraction of the gravestones in the cemetery, and there are many places that would seem to be unmarked graves.

I will be happy to include photos contributed by visitors to this site.  Please contact Leona at to find out how to contribute your photos.
