          This cemetery is located in Berlin  twp section 13 approx 150'x 250' and is well drained and mowed, maintained and cared for. Completely fenced on all four sides and two gates on the east side entrance from north/south roadway from twp road about 1/4 mile north. Just off Steele Co Road #14 and can be easily seen from the county road. Some of the white markers are broken and are either piled up or just laid next to the proper marker bases. I have recorded all that I could read. I also tried to record unmarked grave sites (umgs) when I could determine them.

     Berlin Cemetery Association A-B-C-D layout--Open areas from the SE to the NW corners. A low waterway area runs thru the center of this cemetery and the grave sites are on the higher areas to the SW and the NE slopes.

 I have estimated about (10)umgs in the west part and another (3)umgs(unknown) in the SE corner Area.
