This cemetery is forgotten, it seems. I found it in 1978 when I was helping feed cattle on rented land. It was snowing, and I went to the trees to spread hay for the cattle in among the shelter there, so the snow would not cover up the hay before the cattle could eat it. I stumbled upon some stones, and saw other headstones in the area. I never forgot the cemetery, and now that I am no longer on the farm, or raising children, I have become interested in the genealogy of Floyd County. I am hoping to add to the broad knowledge of the cemeteries around Floyd, and maybe come upon some information that has not been known before, or locations that have had no directions of how to find them.

There are other stones in this cemetery, with no identification.
