This is an otherwise unnamed family cemetery located in the NW, NW, NE of section 17 of Columbia County, WI, In a grove of trees between farm fields off of Zunker Dr. It is the Ed Fischer Farm in 2006. The cemetery is located on private property. It has eight large stones and three foot stones with no visible writing. Ed Fischer has cleaned the cemetery up quite nicely. He took out a lot of brush and keeps it mowed. He repaired and reinforced several of the tall narrow stones so they would not break any more.
