The sign and tombstones for this cemetery were relocated to the Saint Mary's Cemetery Mount Palatine, Mount Palatine, Putnam, Illinois.

According to the sign posted with the stones:

Tombstones moved from field at "Old Prospect" one mile directly east. Martin and Catherina Eirich Wolf purchased Old Prospect after arriving from Bavaria, Germany in 1848.
With no Catholic church or cemetery in the area, Wolf Family Cemetery, located southeast of the house, was burial place for many Catholics.
During the 1970s, the cemetery was destroyed, stones were moved from gravesites, and actual burial place farmed.
This memorial to their ancestors placed here by Wolf family descendants in 1998.
