Maple Grove Cemetery


Directions: Turn north off U.S. Hwy 36 onto Road W11 (11 miles west of Norton or 5 miles east of Norcatur). Drive four miles. Turn east onto Road I for almost one mile. The cemetery is a little off the road on the north side. Warning: Road I is not improved whatsoever (no shale, gravel or sand) so 4WD may be required after rain.

The "Other Information" column may contain information not on the marker and/or data garnered through the transcriber's research. The transcriber designated the rows beginning with the one closest to Road W13.
