This is a family cemetery on private land, no burials anymore but well cared for. It sits on the banks of Drywood Creek 1/2 mile north of the now gone town of Drywood.
To get into the cemetery you have to go through a locked gate, and need permission. Land belongs to Mr. & Mrs. Simpson.
There are unmarked graves in this cemetery that reportedly are bushwackers shot and buried right where they fell. There are also several stones broken or weather worn which were unreadable.
