From the intersection of Hwy 4 (Pennsylvania Avenue) and Westphalia Road, go left or northwest on Westphalia Road for .25 miles until it turns west. Turn left and go up the gravel road until you reach the house. The cemetery is about .15 miles northeast from the house.
This small family cemetery has an iron fence around it, all of which is surrounded by old cedar trees. The cemetery is in poor shape with toppled and buried headstones. It also has a lot of wild plants growing around it.
The cemetery is on land that was once owned by the Talburtt Family. However for the last eighty years, the land has been owned by the Bean Family. It is sometimes called the Osborn Cemetery.
After I walked this cemetery I compared my finding with "Stones and Bones" which was published in 1984.
This is from my visit on Nov 14, 2006. This transcription contains all existing and legible headstones found at that time.- Anne Braun
