Locey Cemetery

Click for Photo Gallery

Locey Cemetery is located on the Camp Joy Road, about one block south of it's junction with Pollman Road. The cemetery is about a block up the hill on the east side of the road. We visited the cemetery when the foliage was down for the year and could only see something that looked like a big black box up the hill, which turned out to be a tombstone. Stones are dotted throughout the about-a-half-acre. Periwinkle provides ground cover and keeps the weeds down. There are un-engraved limestone markers throughout, there could be more buried stones that we didn't find.

The history of the cemetery is published in the Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly 19 - # 1.
