Other Information

At one time this was suppose to have been a larger cemetery with about 10 families buried in it. Later probably some years ago, the township plat map showed the cemetery and that some of the burial were moved to other cemeteries. When I visited the site back in November 2001, I could only find 2-3 bases for headstones and a Iron Cross Marker that is in a iron fence. The plot around the iron cross marker was so full of wild plants that I could not go and see who is buried there. The cemetery is in danger of being destroyed. and
