Go about 1/2 mile & cemetery is located on the right side of the road on top of a hill. You can see it from the road.
 

Notes

Cemetery is recorded from back to front & left to right. It is enclosed by an iron fence but gate is broken. Overgrown with briers & other growth. In l967 Mr. Swank noted that "The farm was owned by John Homan Kline on hill east of lane to the home beyond end of road 828 north of road 259 NW of Broadway. There were probably a half dozen unmarked graves. On the outside of the fence in field are probably as many other graves."
