To reach this cemetery take highway 8 West of Jena, turn right at Eden Community
going through the Frances Community turn left on the Old Big Bend Road go
about 5 to 7 miles until you reach a high-line. Turn left, which is going
toward Little River, go about 2 miles and the graded road will stop, continue
down high-line on un-graded road. Go about 1 mile until you come to high-line
pole # 187 turn right on road used by hunters. Continue on this road about 1 ½
miles until you come to a sharp turn to the left, at this curve is evidence of
an old home place. Stop vehicle here, take dim trail to left following steep
bluff edge for about 1/4 mile until you suddenly approach a square marker
about 4 feet tall, among tall pines and thick under brush. Near the only
marker is evidence of a small fenced plot with maybe 3 graves, over them is a
running Rose and Bride's Wreath. Just a few feet away stands the only marker
erected to the memory of John Henry Schmidt, Sr. & Jr. who both died July
1898.
