This cemetery is on the west side of 625W, about halfway between 600S and
700S. It is down a long drive that goes to the west. An old burnt
brick house sits on the south side of the end of the drive. Just northwest
of the house, on the north side of the drive are two trees on a flat area.
This is where a small shack used to sit. Just north of this, in the
cultivated field, is where the cemetery is. It is completely destroyed.

condition at that time.
An elderly resident recalled that the cemetery was directly behind (north)

carefully. Not even small pieces of limestone were found anywhere on
