From Highway 395, 17 miles South of Pilot Rock, turn right onto the Gurdane Rd and heading west go about 9 miles on the dirt road, which in some places is very rocky. It winds up over the hills and dips down into draws. The cemetery is located on a hillside that slopes to the east, on the south side of the road.
This small cemetery covers several acres, is fenced with a barbed wire fence and has a farm gate, which is locked. It is overgrown with weeds and a good part of it is overgrown with wild rose bushes making finding, reading and photographing the headstones very difficult, but then, it does discourage vandalism, as it is very remote and only one farm house is distantly in sight.
Jim Gleaton and I walked and recorded these headstones on Sep 01, 2005, using a digital camera. Individual photos available by email.- Rella Gleaton
