This cemetery is no longer in existence. It was in a field owned by some people named Pokorney during the late 1800's and was intact as late as the 1970's. New owners allowed their cattle to overrun the field and the cattle trampled the fence and all the tombstones so in the late 1990's there was nothing left but some pieces of iron fencing and large chunks of tombstones. St Mark's Church in DuBois (the nearest city) has death records that show the three persons listed in this cemetery were buried here. I also have personal knowledge of the cemetery as both my Mother and Uncle who grew up on the Rehmus farm just west of the cemetery told me of its existence and that
there were at least a dozen stones surrounded by a low iron fence during their childhood.
