This cemetery, started about 1843-1845,  is located on Taylor Road,
Independence Township, Road 710.   On the 1875 plat map of Independence
Township, the Goodman family tract of land is only one property east of
the William Chapman property, and is directly south of the Joseph
Chapman tract, so would assume the Goodman-Chapman Cemetery is adjacent
to these properties.  (The Tallow Light, Volume 11, #4)
Additional information provided by Terri Rick.
This cemetery is now located on the property of Bernard and Margaret Reynolds
(these are my Grandparents).  They inherited the property from Margaret's
Grandmother, Margaret Lucinda (Bliss) Hendricks, who purchased the property
from the Chapman's.

Also, it is to be noted that Patty obtained a cemetery listing from the
Historical Society which has conflicting dates.  The dates I have provided
came directly off of the Stones.  I have been maintaining a list of the
Cemetery for 21 years now.
