RAINES Cemetery

Heaths Creek Township, Section 21 (NW quarter). On the east side of Hwy J, where Walk Road joins J from the west, a quarter mile south of Saline border. Visible.

Cemetery has some iron fencing, is unattended, and chigger city...no place to pull off. I'd say someone with a will to succeed should visit this cemetery in February (on a bicycle?) with an hour to spare on either side of noon. GCW

One marker for a John L. Newton was removed from here and placed by his wife's marker at Miller's Chapel Cemetery. Not a grave relocation.

Recorded by Mrs. Genevieve L. Carter circa 1960.


Listings without spaces are on one marker.
