Cedar Grove Cemetery

SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 Section 31

This cemetery is located well away from any main roads.  To reach it from Vienna, go west on Route 146 about 3 1/2 miles to the junction of 146 and Route 37.  Turn north on route 37 and go about 3.2 miles to the town of Buncombe and turn west on Main Street.  Go 2 blocks to Lick Creek Road and turn right.  Stay on Lick Creek Road about 4.7 miles to Cedar Grove Road.  About 3 miles from Buncombe there will be a plaque for the town of Elvira, the original county seat of Johnson County in 1818.  At Cedar Grove Road turn Right and go .7 of a mile to the Cedar Grove Church.  As you turn right, Draper's Bluff, as well known landmark will be to the left and slightly ahead of you.  The road forks at Cedar Grove Church.  Turn right on Happy Hollow Rd.  The Cemetery will be .2 of a mile on the right side of the road.  The Cedar Grove Church is a non-denominational church which is still being used.  The cemetery is fairly large and well maintained.  There are a series of 10-14 small markers, none of which have a name of date, but all bearing the words "In God we trust".  Is is not known if these are the markers of children or why there are no other names on them.  Continuing on Happy Hollow Road towards Goreville will take you by Gurley, Perry and Craig Cemeteries.
