From Madison, IN take Hwy 62 east all the way into Ripley County, turn South on Hwy 129, almost as soon as you turn you go into Switzerland County. Adams Road is the first road to your left, it is a dead end road. Going east on Adams Road keep going past Bishop Lane. After you go on past Bishop Lane you will cross a small brook & then go up a hill. At the top of this hill is a little field with a woods behind it.
The graves are just inside the woods at the southwest corner of that field. There was a warning from the woman I got the directions off of to be careful because there is an open well somewhere around there. I didn't see it.
I only found 4 stones in this graveyard and 2 footstones one of which is Malinda Skeen's.
The name of this burial site was not known, but since it contains mostly Skeens, that is the name chosen.- Jackie Owen
