Gravestone Photographs

Liley Chapel Cemetery can only be described as an abandoned cemetery. It is located in a field on private property, though the Fairfield Township Trustees usually mow in about twice a year. No mowing had been done when these photos were taken on April 29, 2006. The only visible stones, mostly broken and heaped in a pile, were for members of the Jackson family and one for a Shaffer child. It is possible that two DUNLOP children (infants or toddlers) were buried at this cemetery sometime between about 1863 and 1870. According to Earl Ballenger of the Madison County Genealogical Society, the cemetery was calle Jackson Cemetery on the 1862 plat map of the area. If anyone knows of an existing index of those buried at Lily Chapel Cemetery I would appreciate it if you would contact me with the information--write to Leona at .
