McKenney Cemetery

Cemetery notes, Picture and/or description from John Ozzy Williams

This cemetery is located in Luce Township, Eureka, in Section 28. It is located (my guess) 300 yards south east of Bakers Creek Cemetery. It is on a knoll in the field. This cemetery has also been called Briscoe Cemetery because it is where the Briscoe School house was located. Some of the blocks from the foundation are still there. Most of the gravestones are damaged beyond recognition. I could not have found this cemetery without the help of the fine folks in the Spencer County Historical Society. The overview picture is by John Ozzy William 2012

There are only 10 stones to my knowledge and I have placed the information below
