Bay Ridge Cemetery

The cemetery is located in northwest Orange County on Joey McGuckin Rd. From I-4, take South Semoran (SR-436) West to Apopka. SR-436 will merge with Orange Blossom Trail (US-441). Continue on US-441 past SR-429 expressway and Boy Scout Blvd. Turn right (north) onto Plymouth-Sorrento Road (CR-437). Continue on CR-437 past West Ponkin Road. At Joey McGuckin Road there is a sign pointing to the cemetery. Turn left onto McGuckin Rd and the cemetery will be on the right about 1/2 mile down the road.

This has to be the worst maintained active cemetery in the county. The cemetery is scattered amongst the woods. There are many headstones lost in the trees and wild bushes. The oldest headstone that I could find was from 1889, while the latest was 2008. I found markers identifying sections P and S but I was loathe to meander through the woods to find any more.
