Kirkland Cemeteries – Kellogg/Chuckery Cemetery

Almost to Chuckery on the north side of Kellogg Street is the next abandoned cemetery in our series: the Kellogg/Chuckery Cemetery. Early settlers in that eastern area of the town were buried there from such local families as Comstock, Kellogg, and Marshall.

The Kirkland Highway Department takes good care of it and has placed a split rail fence parallel to the road which enhances the appearance.

Notes – Three of the men served in the military, two in the Civil War and one in the Revolutionary War. The burial of Glenn H. Evans (1911-1977) is somewhat confusing if accurate. Can anyone help? No other Evans names are recorded so one wonders why Evans was buried there over 75 years after the previous burial? By 1977 this cemetery was officially abandoned so the date of 1977 seems questionable.

The above tombstone inscriptions were recorded in 2001 by Betty McCulloch and Kathleen Last. 3 field stones had no inscriptions.
