This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Directions:
Go west out of Cloverdale on Co Rd 1050S. After about one mile, the road goes a little to the south, then continues west for about mile before going a little north and then west again. The cemetery is about halfway down this stretch of road, just a little bit north of the road down a winding path.
Condition: Fair
Cemetery is in a patch of woods which is keeping the weeds down. The stones are standing and in generally good condition. There is an iron fence around a few of the stones.
A neighbor related this interesting story:
This cemetery is on the south edge of the old stone quarry. As the quarry expanded, the ground was bulldozed to allow for more quarrying which created hills near the cemetery. A boy scout troop literally stood around the cemetery to keep the cemetery from being bulldozed out. Hooray for the boy scouts.
