Old Palmer Cemetery

Read 7 May, 1997 by Nancy Watson, Liz, Betty and Patty

This cemetery is located on Friendship Ridge.  From Proctor, go out Rt 89 to New Dale, turn right at New Dale and go to the Mt. Olive Cemetery.  Looking North West down over the hill and out of site about 500 yards is the cemetery.  It is located at the head of Proctor Creek and there is an old barn beside of it.
