From Covington IN in Fountain County. Head south on Stringtown Road, turn east (left) on 200 South. Cemetery sits on north side of road in about two miles.
You are unable to see the cemetery from the road as it is surrounded by trees, but you can see the entrance. Just after Graham Creek Road.
I am not sure who owns this cemetery, but it is maintained. It was mowed even though the tombstone were in bad shape. Many stones are broken or gone. A lot of the stones are leaning against trees.
This is all the existing stones and records that I could find. I visited the cemetery October of 2002.- Lesa Epperson
