Union Cemetery






Many volunteers take time to drive out to the cemeteries and read the stones. The information is presented as sent. If you know of anyone buried in a Macon County cemetery, please send me an email, and I will the info. Photos are always welcome. A big THANK YOU to all who help this project grow.





Union Cemetery is located three miles southeast of Oreana, Section 22 of Whitmore Township. Union Cemetery location: Route 47/48 North, just before you come into Oreana turn right at East Forest Parkway, your first left (north) turn onto North Kirby Road, follow this for about 1 mile and Union Cemetery is on the left hand side.

As you enter the main gate of the Cemetery to your right there is the Betzer Mausoleum, the only one in the cemetery.

The Union Church is located to the left as you enter the main gate. The Church was organized March 25, 1865 by the Rev. J. Blake and was built by the people of the neighborhood. Funerals for Robert and Louisa Fulk Reed, my g-grandparents, were held in the Union Church.
