It needs some of the headstones found and the broken ones fixed. There was one headstone that was broken in half with one half of it missing. They also need to trim the lilac bushes and mow the grass better.

Other Information

This cemetery was on property that belonged to a Congregational Church prior to 1897. In the 1971 book, "Cemeteries of Northern Cass County" there were quite a number of burials there about (40-50). However a lot of the burials were transferred to other cemeteries, so when the Red River Genealogical Society did the supplement, they only found 10- 15 burials. Some of the headstones are broken and some are hidden in high grass.
