In Response To: Location of Cem. Wild Rose (Brian Staples)

Brian, I added names to both lists for cemeteries in Waushara Co. I've been there many times, as ALL of my great grandparents lived in Waushara and Portage Co. Plainfield Cemetery is on a back road, I believe the road is BB out of Plainfield towards Bancroft. West and then East. Its only about a mile out of Plainfield. The Bardwell Cemetery and the Ray cemtery are just out of Plainfield to the East. Wild Rose cemeteries are Union cemetery just to the South of Wild Rose about a mile or so. Mt. Pleasant cemetery is to the South also but not as far as Union and Oak Hill is right on the Northern edge of Wild Rose as you come in on AA. I hope this helps. If not let me know and we will see about trying to help out a different way. Donna
