From Marble Falls go north on hwy 281 to county road 340 (Mormon Mills road) take a right, go down about 4 miles till you see Hamilton creek, just before the creek there is a dirt road to the left, take a left on the dirt road, just follew the road till you see the cemetery on right. The cemetery is over looking Hamilton creek.

This cemetery is not being use no more. It's still in good shape.The Mormons use to come out and clean it.

All the tombstones are hand made of red sandstone, the rock wall around the cemetery is made out of the same type of rock.

All the Mormons are buried inside the rock wall, and all the none Mormons "Gentiles" to the Mormons, are buried out side the rock wall.

I surveyed this cemetery 1996, taking all the information off of the tombstones and by my on knowledge.
