Thanks for the response. Since I posted my original message in March 2005, I subsequently found the location of the cemetery. It is located about where I had heard it was, approximately 0.8 mile north of River Road on Wesley Chapel. A farm lane (perhaps an old road) winds east through the trees, eventually heads back west and south along the edge of a farm field. At the NW corner of that field, there is an obscure lane heading further west into the trees that ends at the cemetery.

From my grandmothers records I show her sister being born at "Heth Township-near Beech Woods Church on Ora Franks Farm"

Beechwood Cemetery is supposedly located ~ 1 mile north of River Rd on Wesley Chapel Rd in the SW part of Harrison County and was originally associated with a Beechwood Congregational Church.
I was unable to locate the cemetery on a recent trip and wondered whether anyone knows its exact location? Based on information from a cemetery index at the library in Corydon, the cemetery must be reasonably large and not simply a family cemetery. Some records indicate it was located in "Lopp's Hollow", but I cannot find a reference to this geographic spot either.
