|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is covered by dense brush and trees for the most part, but the south and west portions are covered with tall grass. It was impossible to read all the tombstones, but is believed all the tombstones known to have been passed over (possibly five or six) were children's markers. There are also rough fieldstones being used as grave markers, and numerous foot stones for which no headstones can be found to mark the same graves. It is reasonably easy to find this cemetery, and it is marked on some county maps and plat books. To find Lewis Cemetery, begin by driving to the Memorial Lawn Cemetery caretaker's house, and drive west on the road commonly known as the "Old Airport Road". At the end of one mile the road makes an abrupt turn to the south. Drive southward until you reach the second road westward. Turn west on this road and you will see, six-tenths of a mile in front of you, a large cluster of trees and brush, which is the site of Lewis Cemetery. The driving distance from the Memorial Lawn Cemetery caretaker's house to Lewis Cemetery is 2.6 miles. Located in the area known as the Upper Buckhorn neighborhood, the legal description of Lewis Cemetery is in the southwest quarter of Section 18 of Township 14 N Range 10 W. The cemetery is approximately midway between Lynnville and Woodson.
