"If you are interested, I think it is within a mile or two past this cemetery you go around a curve to the right and the road goes over a culvert and there is a driveway just immediately after that. We stopped at this house to inquire about the cemeteries we were looking for, as it had been probably 18 years since I had been there. The man told us about a cemetery on top of the hill just where the road goes over the culvert on the right. In the winter you would probably be able to see the headstones from the road. It is very overgrown and probably 70+ graves. No one has been buried there since 1975 with many old graves. This cemetery will be lost if someone does not index it. I went through it just to see if I recognized any of the names. I did not. In the summer it was very grown over and dense, so if someone could find it while the leaves were off the trees, it would be easier to index."
