From Helix drive south on Hwy 335 for 5.2 mi. Turn left or east onto Reeder Road. Cemetery will be on the right or south side of the road on a rise.
This cemetery is said to have been established in 1878. It is in an overgrown field on private land with mostly large headstones scattered over about 2 acres. They were very hard to find in the tall weeds. It is surrounded by tilled fields.
It is within the Helix Cemetery District, but not maintained, as far as we could tell. Information in parenthesis is mine.
Jim Gleaton and I walked and recorded these headstones on Sep 01, 2005, using a digital camera.- Rella Gleaton
