Harkness Grove Cemetery


Harkness Grove Cemetery is located in Section 3 of Trivoli Township.  If you are going
west on Route 116, turn right on Stone School Road. It's about 1/2 mile to the
cemetery...on your right. There will be a cornfield in front of it so
you may not see it easily from the road in the summertime.

unless otherwise noted.

The PCGS cemetery book was used for reference in
deciphering the hard-to-read stones. Also there are
a few entries I didn't have an associated picture.

There were a few stones that were totally unreadable
and a few bases without stones.
