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.
