The Ouzts Older Ground Cemetery has not been found for several years. It is reported to be located about 0.5 miles further down the Ouzts Cemetery Road from the Ouzts Newer Ground Cemetery.

In 1936, Flora Alma Ouzts recorded the stones that were legible at that time for The Ouzts Family Association.

Those that were recorded were, J. C. Ouzts, d. 1840. [This appears to be John Calvin Ouzts and would be a duplicate stone as he also has one in the Ouzts Newer Ground Cemetery], 2. J. Ouzts, d. 27 Mar 1886 [Jacob Martin Ouzts, Jr.], E. R. Ouzts, d. 14 Nov 1886 [Age 4 years], M. Ouzts, d. 18 Mar 1872, Martin Ouzts, d. 24 Jul 1844 [Jacob Martin (Jake) Ouzts, Sr.], J. Ouzts, d. 9 Aug 1843, M. P. Ouzts d, 3 Apr 18 _ , age 76 years and 10 months, [possibly Michael Ouzts].

There are many additional graves with stone scattered about. It is believed that the Patriarch of the Utz / Ouzts Family in America, Johann Dietrich Ouzts and his wife, Dorothea SAMBLIN Ouzts, are also buried here.
