Take St. Rt. 133 south out of Bethel
towards Felicity. After Hoover Road get ready to
turn left onto Swope Road. The cemetery is located after 1751
Swope Road on the left. In 2009
there were two large white fences outlining the entrance to the
driveway. The cemetery has been deeded
to the Tate Township Board of Trustees, along with the driveway for
right of way ---so I proceeded
back the driveway until I no longer felt comfortable for safety reasons
and entering another’s property
(there were some campers parked on the owner occupied lot).
The cemetery is straight back to the left
a little from the driveway. Good terrain.

Summer of 2009. The cemetery was very dark so photographing
was complicated. I found some new stones and do believe there
may be some
undiscovered stones laying underneath the ground, as the existing
stones are not in
an organized order. I probed and found a few. The
neighbors were very nice to me
as I knocked on many doors trying to locate this cemetery.
Stones I could not located previously recorded:
