Location of Frances cemetery:  From Bellville, take 1456 to BuckhornCommunity.  Turn left on Korthauer Road.  Turn right on next road which is Buckhorn Estates (beside the Smith cemetery). There is a trailer on this corner and another trailer a little further down.  Stop on the road by the third fenced area which is on the right. There are gates on both sides of this fenced property.  Cemetery is at the back of this property and you must hike through brush to get to it.


Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.


PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.
