Directions to Ling Cemetery

The cemetery is on the Alan Browning (previously Carl Wagner) farm approx. 1 mile north and slightly west of Buckstown.

  • From Buckstown on Rt. 30:
  • Take Boomer Miller Road at St. Paul's Lutheran Church north for approx. 1 mile.
  • Turn left onto Browning Road. The only house on this road (to your left) is Brownings. As you face the Browning house the cemetery is on a hill to the south (behind the houses).
  • Ask permission to walk or drive across the farm road to the cemetery which is on a hill to the south of the house (behind the house). You cannot see the cemetery from the house, it on the top of the hill in a grove of trees.
