The CCC Cemetery has been located! The members included in locating this cemetery were: Jackie P. Journey, Joyce A. Sparks and Joyce M. Sadler. Others included in helping locate this cemetery were: Dennis D. Sadler, Coby and Alyssa Sadler.

The specific location of the cemetery is:

From US 52 West, take State Route 125 South for 2.3 miles to Pond Lick-Forest Road (Forest Road 1) on the left. Go 4.1 miles to the intersection of Forest Road 1 and Forest Road 2. Bear right (straight) onto Forest Road 2 and go .07 mile. You will see an orange metal gate on the right side of the road and a sign reading Mackletree Bridal Trail. Park at the gate and walk approximately 50 feet. There are two wooden posts on your right. This is the entrance to the cemetery.

GPS Coordinates - 38° 41' 52N · 83° 12' 32W

 

They are currently logging Shawnee State Forest and have placed blue plastic ribbons on some of the trees enclosing the cemetery. We assume this means "Do Not Touch" for their logging equipment.

The cemetery is in very poor condition with high grass and brush and several tree limbs strewn all through it. From other sources, it is stated that the cemetery is .07 acres. All of the markers are field stones and seem to have both a stone at the head and foot of the burial place. You can make out outlines of graves in the earth. Two of the larger field stones had remnants of memorial flowers around them. There are no inscriptions, so it is unknown who is buried here. There seemed to be approximately 8-10 burials, but perhaps more located under the dense brush.
