McCoy Cemetery

This very old cemetery is located about 1/4 mile south of the old Riddle Inn found on the Goshen trail (see Maps of Towns Past and Present) in the Knight's Prairie Township.  Until a few years ago the inn was still standing but has since fallen down and only an outbuilding remains.  Many graves are located here but few visible markers remain. A few of the  names were recorded from this cemetery in April, 2001 by Gary Tidball who has contributed the information to Yesterdays.  Thanks, Gary!
This cemetery was identified by Ralph Harrelson on film #988,626 at the Mesa LDS FHL.  He describes the location at being west of Union Church, Knights Prairie township.  (Thanks, Phyllis Collins!)
