ANYONE WITH INFORMATION ON THIS PATRIOT
I'D APPRECIATE HEARING FROM YOU.Stephen D Franklin

Directions: Pleasant Grove Cemetery

From Sellersburg take State Hwy 31 North and turn right on State Hwy 403 heading toward Charlestown, Indiana. Go 3- 4 miles Stacy Road in marked in advance by a highway sign, turn right on Stacy Road, go about 3/10 of a mile there is a gravel road between some new homes. The mailbox for 7911 Stacy Road is just after the driveway (the mailbox is on your left)(the road is to the right) take it all the way back. As you are near the end it looks like a private driveway leading to a house, BUT you need to keep going straight in the grass to drive up to the cemetery gate. I will try to get a contact person on here soon.
