There are 4 graves in a stone fence headstones are make of sandstone. Local historial says that this was the graves of 4 pioneers (mother and 3 children) who died of fever while on a wagon train and that the father buried them and made a stone fence around the graves to keep bufalo from walking on it. There are several sunken spots that are probably unmarked graves.

Other notes:

2 metal markers - no names
M.M.M. on rock
Brick (grave site ?)
sunken grave no marker
