Directions to Doty Cemetery

If you plan on visiting Emment / Doty Cemetery, bring your hiking boots!

The path is near the back of Legion Park behind the playground equipment.

You go down a hill,


around a bend,

over stepping-stone rocks that cross a small creek,

up a hill, and,

viola, you made it!

Emment / Doty Cemetery

St. Rd. 13

(Located about 3/4 of a mile behind Legion Park on St. Rd. 13. This is about a mile into Madison Co.)

Some bodies and stones were moved to Gravel Lawn 38+ years ago.

A few field stones were used as head stones.

Neighbors claim these stones were for Native Americans who were buried there.
