I was able to find the bases of three monuments, but only one inscribed stone and a foot marker. These three monuments appear to have been disturbed. They are just off the highway right-of -way and may have been disturbed during road construction. A pile of rocks was found about 20 feet from the grave markers. These are the type rocks usually found marking graves, so there may be more graves at this location. I suspect that this cemetery was destroyed during construction of the highway about 1929..
