NORTHRUP CEMETERY - EST 1840s

Avon Township, Rock County, Wisconsin

Northrup Cemetery is about 7 1/2 miles NW of Beloit; 1 mile SE of Brodhead, Wisconsin; 3/4 mile east of the Green/Rock county border. Take Hwy 81 west of Beloit; go north 1 mile on Avon Store Road; west 1/4 mile on Avon Road. The cemetery lies on the south side of the road. It is small and I passed it by the first time. Northrup Cemetery is surrounded by farmland.

The stone was too heavy too lift.
So this one remains unknown.
