Chestnut Cemetery


Chestnut Cemetery is located in section 3 of Madison Township in the extreme southwest corner of Mercer County. From Modena, go south just over one mile to the second road to the right (west). This road will quickly turn to a semi-gravel/dirt farm road. Continue west one-and-a-half miles. The road will turn to the south at the top of a hill. The cemetery is located approximately 1/4 mile north of the road in a pasture/timber area and is on private property.

The following information was obtained from various sources and compiled as a listing of known burials and related information by Phil Stewart in February, 2004.
