There are no markers in this cemetery. The cemetery was a pasture for many years until in 1965 when the State Dept of Roads was working on the road sliced open some of graves when they learned it was an old pioneer cemetery.
The Cemetery was never a deeded cemetery so it was not on any maps except the 1885 plat map of Adams county.
This cemetery served the early settlers in 1870's until the Leroy or Little Blue Cemetery (now Blue Valley) was established in 1919.
The land on which the cemetery is located was first given by Charles Bird, who owned the surrounding land. The early settlers fenced the cemetery and kept the markers up, and the grounds clean, but as time passed and new owners took over the land, the fence was knocked down by cattle and grave markers lost.
In 1987 a large metal marker was bought and the state place it on the roadside hill at the cemetery.
