This cemetery is located off E700 St turning east on N1235 Rd and driving one quarter mile cross country to the east fence line then south about 200 yards to the crest of a hill following the ridge back west about 150 yards where the stones lie flat in a pasture and are difficult to see. 400 27’ 32.5” N: 900 45’ 56.2”W
Remarks: Little remains of this small graveyard. The site is within privately owned property and is about one quarter mile from any public road. Broken stones for the individuals listed below were found under a large hickory tree located in pasture land. One large stone, apparently hand-carved from native rock, is not totally unreadable. Another portion of a stone contained the name “Esther A.”; the remainder of the marker could not be located. The following information was obtained in mid-1974
