Contributed by Dennis Lamb, Dec 04, 2006, last edited Jul 23, 2012 [dennislamb@msn.com]. Total records = 15.

Driving instructions: From Hwy 24 at Mound Station near Timewell drive west on County Road 1100 NE for 1.4 miles. Turn left (south) onto Rd 100E and proceed 0.4 miles to cemetery on the left or east side of the road.

This small old cemetery has many stones toppled over and many others illegible. The cemetery has some maintenance but is not active. I did not investigate current ownership.

I surveyed this cemetery on Oct 27, 2006. All legible tombstones are included.
