Buckhorn Cemetery is about 5 miles from the Newton County Line. Starting at the Fallsville Store turn on Highway 16 and drive 2.6 miles, turn on dirt road go about .7 miles and stay at the right at the 'Y' in the road. The driveway to the cemetery will be sort of hidden but will turn off to the right. If you miss the turn to the dirt road you will go about 5 miles to the Newton County Line.
It took the two of us 2 hours and 5 minutes to transcribe this cemetery, and we hope you'll enjoy having it online. There were stones here that were hard to read, and stones that had been broken, but we've tryed our best to transcribe as best as we could. Anything below the transcription in ( ) is stuff we know about the person mentioned and if it is in ( ) that stuff isn't on the stone.
