I'm seeking cemetary records for the old Union Grove Cemetary East of Coffee. I visited it several years ago but can't give directions (my now deceased Uncle took me there).

My Great Grandmother, Hannah MERRIFIELD, is buried there according to the headstone. My Great Grandfather, Daniel BROWN, is supposed to be buried there but there was not a marker. Thanks for any help you can give on the cemetary and the Merrifield family.
