Brooks Family Cemetery - Springfield Twp.

Transcribed from headstones by Ken O'Neal

Directions: From the intersection of Rt 711 and Rt 381 in Normalville, go west on Rt 711 0.5 miles and turn right on George Prinkey Road. Go 0.5 miles turning left on the second road to the left (Brade Brooks Rd). Go 0.45 miles to the top of the hill and to the far end of the field on the right. On the right is a grassy lane which goes back about 200 yards to the cemetery. It is my understanding that the stones were removed from the cemetery at one time and later returned by the landowner after people complained.
