I recently discovered some interesting old stone gates on some acreage adjacent to my new home. After some investigation it turns out there is a rather old, 19th Century cemetery on a bluff overlooking Markley Road. I doubt many people know it even exists. There is no recognizable way into or out of that area.
This is a photographic documentation and exploration of that area.

Below is a note from Hamilton County Historical Society. They have minimal information about the cemetery on their web property that archives local grave sites. Another name exists for this cemetery: Liberty Chapel Cemetery.
West side of Markley Road North of Bennett Road
Hamilton County, Ohio
This cemetery is located on the west side of the road, high on a bluff overlooking the valley to the east. Access is by a small wagon road which takes off from the main highway at a 30 degree angle, and it winds up the steep hillside toward the west. A steel rope at the top blocks traffic. A winding lane follows the ridge and finally reaches the little cemetery. The trees have taken over the area and it is very difficult to locate and work in. The names are from the Marie Dickore Research Collection and permission is given by the Norwood Family History Center Director, Alma Ryan, who has possession of the collection.
