     This cemetery is located in Rice County Minnesota, one and a half mile south of Morristown, on the west side of County Road 16 in the S/E corner of section 34 in Morristown Township.

       It had been mowed, but didn't appear to be well kept as some of the grave sites and markers were located in a thickets of brush and several graves could have been overlooked with this record.
