Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located 1 mile west of Hardin on Hwy 10; 2 miles north on "A." You need to go through two cattle gates to get to the cemetery. There is a large sign at the entrance on the east side of Route A but the cemetery is loacted a distance from the road.

History: In 1845 John W. Morris and wife deeded three acres for this cemetery. There were several conditions to this deed - the ground must be used for a place of worship, a public burying ground and a school be erected if advisable in the future. At that time it was a forest. The wife of Rev. S. L. Edgar was the first to be buried there. In 1870 George Morris and wife made a second deed for ground; later Alexander Lavelock and wife donated a strip of land around the burying ground, making a total of four acres. Through the efforts of interested people a chapel was built and dedicated in 1925. The stained glass windows contain the names of Dr. W. F. Yates, Dr. J. H. Stapp, N. and M. Lentz, Rev. M. M. Spurlock, N. and M. Esrey and J. F. Bates.
