Hearon Cemetery

This cemetery is located deep in the woods in southeastern Nevada Co. It is located in the NE1/4 SW1/4 of Section 16, Township 14 South, Range 20 West. Only two marked graves are found here. A sign on a tree identifies it as Hearon Cemetery and the sign states that it is maintained by Lamartine Deer Camp.
Driviing directions: It would be best to get someone familiar with the area to take you to this cemetery. It is seven chains west and five chains north of the southeast corner of the NE1/4 SW1/4 of Section 16 on property owned by Potlatch Corporation. The timber around the cemetery was clear cut about 2001, but a small grove of trees was left around the graves.
