The memorial I have recorded is for his father & Charles is listed as a child but is linked to your memorial for Charles.

Wright Cemetery
(correction to previous message) I think it is actually a golf course, not a farm.

RE: Wright Cemetery, Montgomery Co
Hi Ron. I have not been to Wright Cemetery personally but can provide directions. As for Newton and Sarah Coffey, they had grave markers in the 1940's when Walter Sanders and his high school students read the cemetery. Based on photos and descriptions that have been passed along, the cemetery is somewhat overgrown and not maintained in any way. The last time I know of that someone visited and took pictures was about 3 years ago - he did not find the Coffey markers at that time. I'm sure they are there, but it will just take some looking. The cemetery is located in the SW quarter of Section 15 of South Fillmore Township, near Van Burensburg. Where St. Rte 185 and 3rd street meet, just north of Green Hill Cemetery, there looks to be a farm and residence. I would park there, ask about the cemetery and get permission to access the land, and then it looks like if you walk due north you will find the cemetery. Here is a link to where the cemetery is at,-89.29223&z=15&t=H

I've got 1 year of grad school left and then I will have time to get back out to Montgomery County to locate, visit, and read the rest of the forgotten cemeteries. I will make sure to put Wright on the list. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

RE: Laura Reed Draper
Hi Ron. I just transferred her memorial. Happy to do so for any others that might be your relatives. My mom and I all the cemeteries in the northwestern part of the county, so if your family lived in that area we probably found their graves. Take care, Ann
