Surveyed by: Jeff Weaver and Dave Reedy 12 Jun 2003
Comments: This cemetery is immediately adjacent to the Mitchell Reedy Cemetery, but the two plots are two separate cemeteries. They at one time had separate fences, and separate groups of people to maintain them. This cemetery, however, has fallen into severe disrepair. Only two grave markers were located, although others may have been present at one time. Cattle have been in the area, and any other stones that may have been present have been imbedded in the soil.
