BETHEL BAPTIST CEMETERY
Transcribed by ©Sue Reed and Susan Cook on Wednesday May 19, 1999


Directions:  Going North on Rt. 159 in Collinsville, turn right onto Church street.  Follow to Mill Street, turning right at the Y in the road.  Go across the railroad tracks, take a right at Bethel Road and follow for approximately 2-3 miles.  The Cemetery will be on your right hand side. DO NOT TURN OFF THE ROAD IF YOU SEE THE CHURCH, the cemetery is not located on that property.  If you see the Church, you have gone too far.

*Please keep in mind some of the stones here are old and difficult to read.  We have done our best to bring you the most accurate transcription, but we are human. :)
