Cemetery notes and/or description:
(Hope I got the coordinates somewhat close!)

Information from Interment.net

To reach the Mentzer Cemetery from Convoy, drive west on Convoy Road for 3 miles, then right/north onto Mentzer Church Road for one mile. Cemetery is on east/right side of the road, beside the church.

Alexander Mentzer purchased the land for this cemetery from the widow, Laura Richey, on 7 Mar 1867. On 30 Jan 1869, Alexander sold an acre to the trustees of the Union Church, for a church site. Five years later, 30 Jan 1874, Alexander sold 3/4 acre to the Trustees of the burying ground.

Tully Township Trustees took over the care of the cemetery on 1 Mar 1940. At the time this cemetery was read, Aug 1980, it was still in use. I'm not sure about that now.
