Smith/Jessee Cemetery

Located near the intersection of Rt's 640 & 645. This is a small family cemetery located in a cow pasture near a barn and across from a house near an intersection in Mill Creek, close to Carbo. It is in poor condition, the headstones are knocked over and in high grass. Some of the headstones are hand-made and unreadable. I wrote down information on all the headstones I could read.

Note: Items in brackets ( ) added by the compiler.
