From the 281 & 36 Junction in Smith Center go 3 miles East to S road turn left and go north to 70 road (9 miles) turn west for 3/4 mile. Cemetery is located on the South side of the dirt road.
J.W. Galloway deeded this acre out Feb 20, 1884 to be used as a cemetery. There are perhaps 20 people buried here. Names and grave sites are unknown.
There were killer diseases in those days. Pneumonia, typhoid, diptheria, flu and small pox to name a few. If anyone knows names of burials in this cemetery I would be glad to add them.
I visited this cemetery on Nov 26, 2005.
