Corners:
NW: N39°40.448’ W86°31.366’
SE: N39°40.424’ W86°31.340’

Approximate Center:

N394026 W863121

Condition:
This cemetery is fenced on three sides (the road is to the west), mowed, but not maintained.  Prior to restoration, this cemetery was in deplorable condition.  Many stack stones had fallen and were sinking.  Most tablets had fallen long ago and were sinking face up.  Almost all standing stones were leaning.
The cemetery was restored in 2005 and 2006 by Jessica Felix and the 8th graders at Cascade Junior High.  Many large monuments were righted, stones cleaned, broken stones repaired, and leaning stones reset.  The difference is amazing.

Photos of the individual stones have been added to Find-A-Grave .  
For detailed information about the individuals buried in the cemetery, please contact Jessica Felix.
