From Eldorado, Oklahoma take Highway 6 West, turn south on Cemetery Road. Go approximately 4-1/2 miles south on Cemetery Road. Turn East on an unpaved road and go approximately 1/2 mile. The cemetery is on the north side of the road. Cemetery Road is paved except for the last 1/2 mile before the turn back east.
There is a space with two grave spots which has concrete curbing around it. It appears to be for children, with no markers or graves visable. The cemetery is fenced but cattle have been grazing in the entire area.
The cemetery is about an acre in size, only these three gravestones left. It will probably disappear one of these days since the entire area is being farmed.
I surveyed this cemetery in the summer of 2003. This includes only all existing and legible headstones.
