La Crosse Tribune (Nov 21, 1965- Page 25)

About four miles southeast of Romance on a gravel road is a majestic pine tree which stands sentinel over a lonely and long abandoned cemetery where tombstones are hidden in a ticket of dense underbrush. Toppled and broken stones bear the names of such early settlers on the South Fork of the Bad Axe River as Oliver, Johnson, Davis, Phillips and Hartley.

The cemetery is on the Lois Engler farm, whose mother Clara B. Anderson,79, said the burial ground was a well-kept and fence-enclosed place until about 1932, when it started to become run down because most younger ones moving away. She said many persons were buried there without tombstones, and other families included Sidie, Miller, Campbell, Smith and Sutton.

A short distance farther on the same road is another dense thicket of undergrowth and trees where the toppled and cracked tombstones of Peter J. Mellen and Jerry Hockenberry are scattered on the ground.

(note: Peter Mellen and Jerry Hockenberry are buried in the Viroqua Cemetery)
