Mapping location of the old cemetery. This cemetery is in the same section of land that Jericho is located, but is about 1/2 mile north of 100 South, and 1/4 mile west of 500 East. It is in the middle of the woods, near where the first meeting house was located. Land was also set aside at that early time for education. In 1998, Jericho Friends met for worship back here, connecting with our past.
