DIRECTIONS: From Jasper take 190 west to the airport, turn left on Farm Road 777. Go five miles. Cemetery is on the left side of the road. The oldest marked grave in the cemetery that has birth and death dates is that of T. F. Truitt b-10-20-1833,d-4-3-1869 who was the spouse of Nancy Allen daughter of William and Annie Allen), however some of the older family records show that Annie (Grigsby) Allen spouse of William Allen Sr. died October 27 1863. William Allen Sr. and Annie (Gribsby) Allen lived in a house near this cemetery and is seems reasonable to believe that She was the first to be buried here. January 30, 1931 Dallas and Kate Wigley deeded the land to the Beech Grove Community, Beech Grove Cemetery. This has always been known as the Allen Cemetery, and (with few exceptions) the people that are buried here are the
descendants of William Allen Sr. and Annie (Grigsby) Allen. Our thanks to Mr. and Mrs. W. W Cogbill for helping us get the information on this Cemetery.
