Directions:
This cemetery is on the east side of 775W between 675N and 800N, north of the jog in the road. (0.60 miles north of 875N) The small fenced cemetery is right next to the road.  It is on a small hill surrounded by a field.

Corners:
NW: N39°52.177’ W86°40.275’
SE: N39°52.169’ W86°40.266’

Approximate Center:
N39°52.173’ W86°40.271’ or
N395210 W864016

Condition:
This is a small fenced cemetery that is currently not mowed or maintained. However, the decendents and landowners have plans for better fencing and stone restoration. Currently the cattle get through the weak fence and into the cemetery. The cemetery may be larger than the current fenced area, since cemeteries are usually rectangular.  The front posts are probably in the orginal location, but the others were added later in a more triangular arrangement.  All but one of the stones are tablets, most of which are broken and fallen from the cattle.  Gravestones for 11 people were found.  See Find-A-Grave for individual photos and biographies.
