Parker Cemetery

 

Parker Cemetery is located in Section 17 of Trivoli Township.
Go west on Route 116 past the town of Trivoli. Then turn
left on Cramer Road. Go past Moul Road and you'll
see this little cemetery by the side of the road
on your right...can't miss it!

Janine Crandell "walked" this cemetery on Oct. 3, 2006.

This cemetery at one time belonged to a Methodist Church. The old
church building was being used as a barn on the Milo Threw farm
just south of the cemetery ... originally walked by
June Williamson, Jean Sigulas and Virginia Schultz
