Taylor Cemetery
Rome Township
Section 6

AKA Taylorville, Kreamer.
Taylor has been designated a Pioneer Cemetery

"The cemetery is in here! Some work will be required to make it visible." That was the caption several years ago when the photo at the left was first posted. The work was done by the Jones County Cemetery Restoration Project and the "unknown" cemetery renamed "Taylor Pioneer Cemetery" in March 2002. It is located on the Richard Smith farm east of Morley.

This reading was made from digital photos taken on 26 May 2003 by J. J. Lash. The transcript is complete in that all markers with any legible information are represented. There are a few other small markers with no writing on them. Joanne Wilken has sent in some additional notes. They appear in this color.
