Note:  There are several graves in the cemetery that are obvious but 
not marked or the markers have disappeared.  There are five curbed 
markers of wood with no names visible.  Those are quite close together, 
possibly indicating one family.  Several graves have been moved to the 
cemetery at Gordon NE. 

- This note made when information was gathered in 1980.
Note: scowan4738@hotmail.com wrote, "I am not 100% positive but believe a 
number of the unmarked graves in this cemetery maybe additional members
of the Gardner family.  

Family bible shows:
William Russell Gardner was born 29 Aug 1858 Scott County Iowa died 9 
December 1937 buried in Log Cabin cemetery.

is buried in Log Cabin cemetery.

[There] may have been other members of the family there also.  William's 
brother Tobias Gardner also lived in the area. [3/4/2002]
