James H. Hess & Smith Cemeteries

Located on Rt. 635, Horton Ridge. From Rt. 67, take Rt. 635. Go about 500 ft., on right side of road, turn up first driveway (this is a private drive). There is a new home there. Cemetery is about 100 ft. above the home. Names and dates confirmed by Mrs. Windfred )Lou) Horton. This appears to actually be two cemeteries. The Hess cemetery is fenced and well kept. There are several graves outside the fenced area of the cemetery where the Smith's are buried. This area is overgrown and needs cleaning.
