Turn right OFF HIGHWAY 304 AT LAREATA SUB DIVISION. FOLLOW THE ROAD TO THE FIRST STOP SIGN. TURN RIGHT. Go over bridge, past Campfire road. Cemetery is located on the right side of the road near an electric pole between lots 87 and 88. THE SUBDIVISION DEVELOPERS DEEDED THE LAND TO THE COUNTY.WITH ACCESS ALLOWED. WALK A GRAVEL ROAD TOWARD A HOME IN THE WOODS. AFTER ABOUT 50 YARDS THERE IS A PATH TO THE LEFT LEADING INTO THE FOREST, ABOUT 20 YARDS INTO THE FOREST IS THE SMALL COLLECTION OF GRAVES. IT IS A QUIET PLACE WITH ONLY WILD ANIMALS COMING INTO THE CEMETERY, LIKE TURKEY, DEER AND BIRDS. THE HOUSE IS ABOUT 100 YARDS FURTHER INTO THE FOREST. IT APPEARS NO ONE HAS EVER MAINTAINED THE SITE AND IT REMAINS FILLED WITH LEAVES AND 1 OR 2 FALLEN TREES. A BARBED WIRE FENCE ONCE SURROUNDED THE GRAVES, BUT IT NO LONGER STANDS UP RIGHT.
