Byrd Cemetery

 

Byrd Cemetery is on Byrd Rd. at Kirby in Franklin Co.
Driving directions are: Starting at Main St. in Meadville turn on Oldenburg Rd. and drive for 3.3 miles. Turn to left and drive for 2.5 miles to Byrd Rd., there is a sign there
that says Byrd Cemetery. Turn to the right and drive for 0.8 miles. The cemetery is on the left and has a sign in front of it.

Some of these graves are very old and some was hard to
read. Some of them could not be read at all. I tried very hard to get it right but some of my information may be a little off. Documented Oct. 7, 2001 By: Angela Arnold
