My cousin Teresa and her husband Steve Price found this cemetery in the fall of 2001, they explained that it was located up on the Mississippi river bluffs across from the town of Fall Creek off route 57. They were taken to the area by the current owner of the property on which the cemetery is located and said it was very difficult to get to, due to the fact that the old road to the cemetery is now overgrown with trees and weeds, requiring them to take a very steep path up the side of the bluff. She took pictures of the area of the cemetery but informed me that all but a few of the grave markers had been removed and those that remained were all weathered so badly that she was unable to decipher or recognized any names. She further explained that the area of the original cemetery was so over-grown that it could hardly be recognized as a burial ground. An interesting fact is that there are at least three large mounds in the pictures that she sent me that can be identified as old Indian burial mounds, of which there are many along this stretch of Mississippi river bluffs.
