"The cemetery is on private land belonging to the Avi family. It is located west of the Ludlow Monument in Township 32 S, Range 65 W, on County Rd. 40.2 just below the junction of County Rd. 44 across from the white house on the mesa. It is across a small arroyo and about 1/4 mile up to the top of a hill from the public road. A woman familiar with the area said the Avi family has had a lot of trouble with trespassers and vandalism and so does not like anyone coming on their land. There are perhaps 100 graves evident, very few have engraved stone markers. There are many small metal markers, but the names have long since disappeared. Many graves are marked by natural stones. There is one small plot enclosed by a wooden fence next to a small plot enclosed by a wire fence. The wire fence has a wire arch across it and looks like a large basket. The other graves are scattered over a large area. Trees and brush have encroached upon many graves. Since it seemed unlikely that many people know of this cemetery and because access may be limited, I copied the inscription of all the stones I could find. According to a letter written by Fred Spencer, a relative who lived in the area when the cemetery was still in use, "Many prominent early homesteaders are buried there with a lot of the miners who died in mine explosions." The land used to belong to the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company."
