This cemetery is located at Daisy Hill church near Borden in Wood Township. N1/2, SW1/4, Sec 26, R5E, T1S. Wood Township Trustee Shirley Nolot reported on 6/8/97 that the site is maintained by the church.
I presently do not have an index for Daisy Hill Cemetery.
There is also a separate African-American Cemetery on Daisy Hill Road, about 250 yards southwest of Daisy Hill Church Cemetery, as reported in the Summer of 1997 by Lynn Cooley.
