Deed Record #24, page 117:
John N. Mulkey to T. A. Lovelady, William Huffman, and J. H. Spann, Trustees of the Christian Church at Mulkey Grove and their successors in office. April 25, 1877.

Mulkey Grove Christian Church is gone, and the cemetery is virtually abandoned. It sits about 1/4 mile north of E. Tamaroa Road, just west of Cardinal Circle, across private property. Many of the stones are completely covered with bushes. A few of the interments listed here are from old transcriptions done many years ago of stones that are no longer easily found.
