Other Information: Extremely overgrown with lilac bushes that are damaging gravestone. Cemetery is neglected as well as used in the past as a party place for local youth. Cannot tell it is a cemetery because of all the growth around it thus a perfect place for kids to party without being seen. As far as I can tell it is owned by whomever farms in this area. Back in the late 1800s my grandfather's ancestors gave the land for this cemetery and I have a few relatives buried here. There is no direct road into cemetery.
Support: one other relative.
