Fredonia Cemetery

Go 11 miles out from Henderson on Hwy 43. Turn left onto CR 2136. Go 1/10 of a mile to a fork and take the right fork (which is still 2136). Continue on another 8/10 of a mile until you see a gravel lane to the left. There are no signs or markers but this is the cemetery drive. Drive down a short distance and the cemetery is on the right.

This cemetery is very sandy. Many of the stones are sunken into the ground where they cannot be completely read; there are many funeral home markers and home-made stones that are illegible.
