This cemetery is on the north side of Ladoga Road, just east of 725W
and the West Fork of the Big Walnut Creek. It is on the current Thomas
Goode property. Since there are no indications of a cemetery, either
be led to it or use a GPS unit. From the house, go north to the line where
the hayfield meets the tree line. Follow the tree line northwest until
some remains of a small barn. The cemetery is in the weeds.

This cemetery is currently just a patch of weeds. A single stone
was found over the hill by the homeowner’s children. They put it back but
it cannot be found now. It has been said that this cemetery used to
be fenced, was next to a hog barn (the old structure), and had more stones
(6-12 in 1933).
The one confirmed burial is for Emerine Adair, died September 11, 1855,
aged 4 months and 26 days, daughter of Thomas J. and Mariah. This
family was found living in the area in the 1860 census, but not owning the
land. The Adams and Fleece families (who intermarried) owned the land
for much of the 1800s.
