This small abandoned cemetery is 6 miles south, 4 miles west, and 
1/2 mile north of Mitchell. In 1882 Gilman Stevens homedsteaded 
this land, then, in 1884 Amanda Stevens died at a time when the 
bridges were all out on the way to Mitchell, making it necessary 
to bury her here on the home farm. Eventually this was used for 
burials of close neighbors as well. There are but 10 visible 
markers, but grave sign indicate at least 22 burials. The land 
belonged to Howard Markla for many years, and has been recently 
sold to Gene Hanten. In 1941 Asa Chenoweth was listed as caretaker 
under the Lisbon township board. No care has been taken of the 
cemetery in recent years. As one drives by, the only stone visible 
from the road is that of Charles Butterfield. Betsey Steven's stone 
lies at the base of a large cedar tree well preserved from the 
elements. The rest are hidden by weeks and bushes badly overgrown.
Stones were read by the Davison County Genealogical Society in April 
of 1978.
An asterick before the death date notates that there is no stone.
