Roxie Town Cemetery

 

The Roxie Town Cemetery is located on Tennessee Street in the Town of Roxie.  As you turn into Roxie off US Highway 84, take the first street to the left and go down about three blocks.  The cemetery is located on both sides of the street.

The numbers to the left of each name tell you which section of the cemetery the person was buried in.  This is a partial listing!
