From the intersection of Highways 6 and 224, go southeast on Highway 6 for .5 miles. The cemetery is in a soybean field west about 250 feet from the road.
This is a small family cemetery which is in poor shape, There were two of the four headstones that were lying on the ground instead of sitting upright. One of the other headstones is leaning on the fence.
There was yet another headstone is a large granite headstone (4 foot long and and 5 feet wide) with the surname of Carpinter on it. There are no first names or dates carved on it nor I could find any indivuals stones to it.
This cemetery was full of groundhog holes and could be considered to be abandoned.
I walked and read this cemetery on Oct 25, 2008.
