Located on the old John McClelland farm, later known as the Harold Dulin Farm. Seven Miles east of Hurley, just above Sugar Camp Hollow. It is estimated that there were possible 28 - 30 people buried here. This many were counted but in 1966-67 only 13 engraved headstones remained. The others are marked with native headstones. The flood waters have washed away severla graves in the south part of the cemetery and have left a deep ravine there. There are no McClellands buried here, the name refers to the original owner of the land. Eddy Houston Cloud appears to have been the first burial here.
