Holland Cemetery

Dudley Township
Established 8 Jun 1841

     Located on CR #950 south in southeastern Dudley Township, just east of the Bentonville Road, about mile north of the Fayette/Henry county line. This area was at one time referred to as the "Beech Grove" neighborhood. At one time (1823) there were plans to build a village in the area on the old State Road (County Line Road South) to be known as "Union" or "Union Town" by William Seward the original landowner, but the plans never materialized.
     This cemetery was established on 8 Jun 1841 when Joshua Holland, and his wife Nancy, who came to Henry County in 1832, as the first part, (grantor) donated 49 square rods, with the whole neighborhood as the other part (grantee) to be used as a "Burying Grounds for the whole neighborhood and vicinity who wish to bury their dead in said yard in a manner that satisfies the living relatives of those deceased."
     Several of the people buried here lived in Bentonville, Fayette County, which is just south of here.
     The old neighborhood burial grounds has not been receiving any care for many years and has turned into nothing more than a trash pile with overgrown weeds and nearly every tombstone has fallen over or has been vandalized. It is in very bad shape.
     Tom Hamm recorded this cemetery in 1973 with a few revisions made by this author. I'm sure there are several stones that are buried and have never been recorded, because this area was one of the main routes into Henry County in the early days and there are no other known cemeteries close by, and a lot of the early pioneers are unaccounted for in the cemetery recordings for this area of the township.
