Brantley Cemetery


Brantley Cemetery is located in section 6 of Medicine Township in east-central Mercer County. From Princeton, go south on highway 65 for about two miles to blacktop E. Turn left (east) on blacktop E and go six miles to the gravel road to the left at the curve. There is a sign at the corner directing to Brantley Cemetery. Go east on the gravel road a little less than two miles. There will be a sign on the left for Brantley Cemetery. Cross the cattle guard and follow the gravelled lane up the hill and to the right. The cemetery is at the end of the lane. It is well maintained, but a few of the stones are worn and/or damaged and are now unreadable.

This survey was conducted by Phil & Kathi Stewart on July 5, 2004.
