To reach this cemetery, from the Lyons Cemetery corner it is 2 miles north and 5 miles west on Ave J. on the south side of the road.
This is a small family cemetery which dates back to the late 1880s, judging from the death dates. I found only one stone visible from the road. This cemetery is very overgrown and neglected.
The one head stone, was that of Bell Dorsey. I found the other names at the Historical Society in Lyons. There could be other stones there buried under the plum thicket and high grass and weeds.
I walked this cemetery in Oct of 2010.- Ermadean Boardman
