Search Cansler Cemetery:

This cemetery is located about 500 feet off the south side of SR1007, Andrew's Mill Road, about 1.7 miles west oif the Washburn Store crossroads. It is on a high hill surrounded by large trees. It is also known as the "Carson-Cansler Cemetery" so it is assumed that members of the Carson family are also buried here. There is evidence of many graves in the cemetery but only one inscribed marker, John Cansler. John's wife, Barbara, had a legible marker at one time, but can no longer be read. It has been moved to the old Cansler/Carson home place. To walk to the cemetery, you can use the mowed utility pole road and then climb up the hill following the coordinates. In October 2014, the cemetery was quite overgrown, but it is cleaned up in the late fall every year by the family that still owns the property.
