|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is 5.4 miles south of the Bernalillo-Torrance county line on NM 337. It is eight miles south of the town of Chilili, New Mexico
On 05-20-2016 the cemetery was found to be in fair shape and easily accessible. The headstones in the first couple of rows had surnames of "Garland"! As with most rural cemeteries in NM, there were possibly 20-35% unmarked graves (making it around 20 graves for Garland), or headstones that have deteriorated so badly to be unreadable. Some graves were overgrown by Mesquite, making it difficult or impossible to reach the headstone without cutting branches, which I did not take the liberty to do. About a dozen graves were place facing the opposite direction of the other graves, and even diagonally to them, but those graves were typically apart from the other graves.
