This cemetery is on the Herbert Brown farm. You will need permission
to enter. The easiest way to find this cemetery is to have the family show
you. Otherwise, use a GPS unit. The house (#8489) is the first house
west of Clay Road on the south side of CR 400N. From the house, go
south past the silos and barns to the cow pasture. Walk southwest to the
gate between the cow pasture and the field. Once in the field, walk south
along the fencerow to the woods. Walk west along the edge of the woods. The
cemetery is in the woods to the south. A wrought iron plot fence is currently
visible through the trees and weeds.

This cemetery is unfenced and not mowed. It is almost completely destroyed.
The area has been used as a cow pasture and will be used again. It currently
has young trees and some undergrowth. The stones have all been knocked over
and stepped on by cows. Only a half of a tablet stone was found. There
were other slotted bases, but the tablets were missing. The pieces of the
stack stones were scattered throughout the cemetery by the cows. The only
graves intact were the ones enclosed in a small wrought iron fence. There
was only one stone found inside plus mature trees.
