Location: One acre of land in the SW1/4 SE1/4 SE Corner Section 33, Town of Forestville. Cemetery is located on the north side of County Line Road, 4/10 of a mile east of the junction with State Highway 42; 1 1/4 mile southeast of the village of Forestville and just over the Door-Kewaunee county line. Also known as the "Elizabeth" Cemetery.
The cemetery is maintained in good condition. Many of the stones are becoming overgrown with grass because they are flat with the ground.
Many of the stones are arranged in family plots containing a large stone with small markers around.

Seven children were born, three of whom survive. Mrs. Ella Geise, and David, of Sawyer, and Lester of Clinton Iowa.
