Short Creek Cemetery Part Two

Generously compiled, photographed and transcribed by Nancy and Connie Bray, thank you both so very much!

We all owe Nancy, Connie, and Nancy's mother, Goldie Fornash, a great deal of gratitude for taking the time to make these valuable contributions!  If you have found any of the cemetery records they have so generously provided useful to you, please take the time to sign the Guest Book and let them know how much all their hard work is appreciated.  Thanks!

Please Note:  Nancy and I have put information in parenthesis from our files to further help you.  Bonnie

 

Directions:
Going south on U S. 27, after leaving Campbell County and entering Pendleton County it is 9 miles to Rt. #  22, where you make a right hand turn. You then travel 6 miles out until you come to the Short Creek Church.
