|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
To get to the grave site take hiway 30 South out of Streeter to sign reading 'The Flats'. Turn right 5.4 miles (West) to Old School house, then turn south 1 1/2 - 2 miles. On right hand N.E. corner of the described land: NE 1/4 of Sec. 22 Township 136 Range 70. German Township Loyan County. As of 1991, the grave was well marked.
The grave was once located in the N. E. corner of the pasture, but with the new road going in, it is now very near in the ditch of the road. But since it had a large prairie tombstone and well marked, the road went around it but very close.
ADenno ,the photographer, who took the pictures of the headstone, in 2012, had a few comments to make on how to find it.
"The directions were a few miles off, but I stopped in at a farmstead and the owner told me right where it was and even recited the poem on the marker."
The photographer later added the following:
"The directions were not bad, the distances were off but the landmarks were right, although the schoolhouse is pretty well degraded, I thought it was an abandoned farmstead. A mile or two on the prairie isn't too far."
These are his directions:
1.Take ND 30 south for 4.8 miles out of Streeter, ND (turning at the T to stay on ND 30)
2. Turn west on 56th St SE (look for small sign which says "Streeter Flats") for 4 miles
3. Turn south on 46th Ave SE (at old schoolhouse) for 1.5 miles
4. Grave is just off the road on the west side a few feet south of the 1/2 section line
