BRADDOCK CEMETERY aka MASON-DENVER CEMETERY

Owned by Ada Thorn, aka AdaSnookie” Grisham.  Parcel #01-13-27-2000-0020-0001.  Platted as cemetery on MASON S/D MB 2 P 23B.  Located at 233 Denver Road.  Take US 17 south of Crescent City to Junction Road and turn right.  Turn left on Old HWY 17 and go south approximately a mile and a half to Denver Road.  Turn right and go approximately .4 miles.  The cemetery is on the left.  Look for historical marker behind fence at side of road. 

This marker is to commemorate THE BATTLE OF BRADDOCK'S FARM, and gives an overview of the battle of approximately 100 Union soldiers, versus 57 Southern soldiers under the command of Capt.  J.  J.  Dickison near the location of the marker.  The marker was erected by the FLORIDA CONFEDERATION FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC SITES, which has taken the care and cleanup of this cemetery on as a project. 

This is a private cemetery that was on the former farm of James Aldrich Braddock, who is buried on this site.  This cemetery is located approximately 100 yards off the paved road behind and to the left of the historical marker. 

NOTE:   This cemetery “inherited” some of the Orange Mills MAYS--SIMPKINS--COLE CEMETERY markers in 1971-72, when its owners wanted their property for development.  Many of these stones were moved to the ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST CEMETERY for storage, but many large base stones and fragments remain, including fencing.  CRESCENT CITY QUAD.  N 29o 24.085 W 81o 31.223.  (Maintained as best as possible by FCPHS.  Recently bush-hogged and stones cleaned by Lynn A.  Hoffmann and Mary E.  Murphy-Hoffmann on February 19, 2002, and again July 2002.  The latest cleanup was February 8, 2003—with the best turnout ever!! – MEM-H).
