Jelly Family Cemetery. Seven headstones remembering eight people. The children don't seem to have fared too well, the youngest predeceasing dad by 6 years. The inscription on the toppled headstone reads: Hannah Morrison died 1878 aged 24 yrs, 9 mons, 10 dys This stone was upright in a June 2014 Google drive-by. The three small stones are simply unreadable. The County Atlas Project shows (in really big bold letters) "Jelly's Crossing" in the immediate area where this cemetery is. There's a nearby intersection named "Jellyby" which simply is too much of a coincidence for there not to be a link. The remnants of a railroad, shown on the old atlas, are still visible there today.

fiso Not sure survival is the right word.....two of the headstones look to be outright replacements. :-)

gravehunter That Cemetery is in a bad spot, usually once a month some drunk manages to miss the corner and rolls down in there. Its a wonder that they have survived this long.
