This cemetery is also known as North Freedom Village Cemetery and Johnson Corners Cemetery.

Sections are divided by driveways, both blacktop and grass. Sections 1 & 2, 2 & 3, 4 & 5 are divided north and south by blacktop driveways. Sections 3 & 4, 5 & 6 are divided by grass driveways. The sections begin on the north side of the cemetery, nearest the school. Section 2, 3, and 4 are also dissected by black top driveways and have A & B divisions. Section 3 & 4 have a C as well. Location of graves will be identified as Row 2A-3 meaning Section 2A, Row 3.
There is a Potters field next to the fence on the school side of the cemetery. There are only four identified graves in Potters Field.
This cemetery has been walked and updated several times in the last three years. I spent many hours with the sexton, Rose Diske, and we went through her records, grave by grave, and added the many unmarked graves and I verified the unreadable stones. This cemetery is complete and up to date. Everything the sexton had is included. As burials occur, they will be added and this cemetery will be kept updated.
