(This cemetery has been labeled the Powell Cemetery. There is a sign there, and the cemetery is now [June 10, 1998] very well-kept.)

Possibly there is a name for this small family-type cemetery, but if so, I do not have the name. It is located just outside the village of BRICE just off Brice Road on REFUGEE ROAD - a couple hundred yards East of Brice Road - on farm property as Refugee Road bends to the South.

There are possibly a dozen stones that are broken, buried, or illegible. A neighbor tells me that the Powell family were founders of Brice.
