To reach the cemetery in Ireland, from route 19 and 4, turn onto Wildcat Road and go approx 4 miles to Bablin/Ingo Road. The cemetery is located directly to the right on a oak knoll above road.

This cemetery is located above the Isaiah Chapel, on the Bablin/Ingo intersection, from the Wildcat Road. It is no longer in use and is not taken care of.

If one is standing at the intersection, facing toward the Ingo road, it can be seen to the left up on a small flat covered with large oak trees. We rode an atv up to the site, had to go through two farm gates, then walk down over the bank to grave site.

Other graves could be recognized by sunken places and field stone rock monuments with writing weathered away. All of the graves markers were of fieldstone. My husband used chalk to rub stones for reading. We are 100% sure of readings or we wouldn't have recorded them.

This is definitely an old cemetery, a good find. We either turned the monuments over after reading or covered them back up to perserve carvings. As you can see there is some large oak trees among the graves and the fence around the graves is now down leaving farm animals to walk among them.

My husband Terry Fisher and I walked this on Oct 19, 2005.
