This large old cemetery appears to be in good care. The area is nearly abandoned, but the church and cemetery still stand. My ancestor William Frizzell helped settle section 18 of Kirkwood Twp. in 1818, bringing 7 of his 8 children here to settle. Other pioneering families that married into the Frizzell line, Waddell, Midkiff, Sheppard, Hudson, Fox, Hinton, Perkins, these are just a few that I know are buried in this cemetery.
