Poarch Family Cemetery
This partially-overgrown cemetery is very difficult reach. The entrance is an old farm path beside the home with the address of 2326 Glendale Mill Rd., Freeman. One must follow this path for well over 2 miles, making numerous turns, and going through a locked gate. The timber has recently been cut and several very large trees were left standing around the cemetery. At least 10 other graves are here, evidenced by fieldstones and uniform depressions.
