Benton Christian Chapel Cemetery
Richey Road- off St. Rt. 756 – cemetery is right before 1156 Richey Road,
Franklin Township
N 38°51.228   W084° 02.880  within 75 ft.  980 elev.

Take St. Rt. 756 out of Felicity until you come upon Richey Road.  Turn right on Richey Road.  Right 
before 1156 Richey Road on left upon a little hill is the cemetery.  I pulled in 1156 driveway and parked 
there.  Of course the premises was presently vacant.  As you come up on to 1156 Richey Road there is 
a small pull off on the left before you get to the hill you could probably pull off on and walk up to the 
cemetery.  I walked through the backyard of one of the mobile homes.  I would drive up and down the 
road until you decide what is best for you.  Not easy access.

Pictures taken by Pamela Smith. CCGS member in Spring of 2008.  I was looking forward to seeing the 
burial of Stephen Bolender who was born in 1756, but his original stone is missing.  Someone has erected 
a newer stone.  The cemetery is not in great shape but for its age it is not that bad.  I dug a few stones 
and probed for a really long time thinking I was hitting stones but could find nothing.  If you go in the 
summer beware it is full of poison ivy but it looks like someone may be trimming a few times a year.  
Some of the monuments need to be reset.  Thanks to everyone in the community who helped me locate 
this cemetery.
