This old cemetery is located in the NE1/4 NE1/4 of Section 3, Township 11 South, Range 23 West. I do not know why it is called Voice Cemetery, since there are no marked graves of people by that name. There are only eight marked graves, but there are many unmarked graves. Mr. Brzeski, who owns the land where this cemetery is located, told me that there were rows of graves marked by rich pine boards when he purchased the land. He has replaced some of these with small, round concrete markers. The cemetery is about one third acre in size. Note: I have heard that the correct name for this cemetery is Boyce, but have not found any documentation to prove that. It was called Voice in the earlier records.
Driving directions: From Prescott, follow Hwy. 371 (once called Hwy. 24) toward Blevins to the Nevada-Hempstead county line. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile east of the highway across a pasture, almost directly in front of the Brzeski residence.
