Cemetery notes and/or description:
A community in the southeastern part of the county in Jackson Township, three miles north of Hunnewell. The community was earlier known as "Ribbon Ridge," so nicknamed, it is said, by the young men of the neighboring "Grab All" (q.v.) community because of the great number of ribbons worn by the young ladies. The name more likely was applied to the narrow ridge of land lying between Black Creek and the North Fork of the Salt River within the southeastern corner, the earliest settled part of the county. Later the name was changed to Union Chapel, for the church and school of that name. (SHELBY COUNTY HERALD, July 31, 1935; SHELBINA DEMOCRAT, July 31, 1935; David Morgan; (F) Sam Coleman)
