The abandoned cemetery is on a knoll in the southeast corner of the front lawn of the Becker Place, south of Little Eagle Creek, on the west side of S. Michigan Road (US 421) at its intersection with E County Road 500 S.
The cemetery is on one of Austin Townsend's original land entries and was the early family cemetery for the Davenports, Lowes, Brocks and Conrads. At one time, c. 1838-50, Bethel Methodist Episcopal church (a log structure) adjoined the cemetery.
In 1888, Milton S. Davenport, sole surviving son of Austin, tried to restore the cemetery, but was unsuccessful.
