General Description: This is a small cemetery apparently dating from the
1870-1890's located on the Saunders County side of the county road that forms the boundary
with Butler County. Four graves have upright markers, and several more are marked with
rocks, bricks or broken markers. Several depressions can be seen in the ground that could
be additional unmarked graves. In all there appears to be 6 to 12 graves present. The
cemetery is marked with an "Abandoned Cemetery" road sign and the county appears
to be mowing it.
Photo contributions or grave lists are welcome.
