Located in Paint Township, Somerset County, PA. From Pomroy's Crossroads south of Windber, take PA Route 160 South for 3.4 miles to the Golden Star Horse Farm. Turn left up into the farm towards the stables. The cemetery is located under a large pine tree about 300 meters behind the stables on top of the hill. More recently this was the Francis Thomas farm back in the 1970's and now the Jeff and Kim Corle Horse Farm.

NOTE: There are also at least three unmarked fieldstones. The 1930's survey stated that this was on the Fred Ott farm, one mile south of Hagevo. Over the years this farm was divided up to where in the 1960-1970's, it was divided between Francis Thomas to the south and Glenn Ott to the north, bordering Hagevo Road. This transcript surfaced again around 1977 and seemed to indicate that the cemetery was more towards the north end of the original farm. The property was divided even more over that past few years. I spoke with the owner who lives in the old Glenn Ott farmhouse along Hagevo Road. He said there were about two headstones just behind his farm, about 200 meters southeast and showed me the plot. He stated that the two stones were removed many years ago before he owned the land. He said railroad ties edged the plot at one time. The plot where the Ott children are buried under the pine tree can be seen from this position, about ¾ to the southwest end of the same plateau. It would seem that there were two separate Ott Cemeteries at one time. Horses and groundhogs have done extensive damage to the site and three of the stones are now missing since the 1930's survey.
