Stetson Cemetery
Location: set back in woods near Airport and Railroad tracks.

Today, the Stetson Cemetery has fallen into abject disarray, most of the stones have fallen down, and the entire cemetery is covered with large brush, trees, and bushes. The transcriptions from the 1890s proves invaluable today, as most of the stones have been broken with pieces missing.
