Directions:
Take Greensburg Road off Rt. 45 east and turn on Ankers Road. Cemetery is located in field northwest of the Henry Kroh stone house.

The Henry Kroh House and Farm were sold by the Kroh family in the 1830's to Colonel Jacob Myers who died 17 Sept. 1855 and willed the farm to his daughter Catherine who married Welcome Sprinkle. She was living in the Kroh House and lived there until her death 12 Jan. 1882. The family sold the farm that year. Court case developed and the county court ordered that the graveyard be "expressly reserved for one and all of the heirs of Cahterine Sprinkle" which contained 2 square poles. A stone fence was built around the graveyard. The deed also gave a right of way from the county road (now Ankers road) on the northeast.

This cemetery is on the private property of a working farm. It is not in great condition, being in the middle of a pasture, and very overgrown with trees and weeds. Definitely ask permission before attempting to visit.
