Mt. Zion Cemetery - Henry Clay Twp.

Transcribed from tombstones by Ken O'Neal

Directions: From Rt 40 E, take Rt. 281 toward Confluence. In about 4 miles you will make a sharp left turn and see the intersection of Parnel and Fangan Roads on a curve. Go 6/10 mile to an old deserted house on the right. You will park at the house and walk uphill behind the house to a field. Turn left, walk along the edge of the woods about 50 yards to the cemetery on the left. The remains of the church are up the hill, across the field. NOTE: You MUST ask permission at house on other side of Rt 281, as this is posted land and the landowner wants to know who is on his land.
