This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Go south of Roachdale on Co Rd 250E for two miles to Co Rd 1100N. Turn right and follow 1100N west about 2 1/2 miles to Meridian Line Road. Turn left on Meridian Line Road and go south about mile. There is a large cultivated field to the right (west). Go west into this field about 1/2 mile to the extreme west edge of the field. The cemetery is just north of the field in some woods, just before a ravine.
Condition: Poor
Cemetery is on a bluff between a field and a ravine. There are mature trees in the area, some of which should probably be cut. Many stones need to be reset. Most stones are in good condition, but there are a few that have been broken. There is a pile of pieces which consists of at least two, possibly more, different stones
The number at the left of each name corresponds with the map of the cemetery.
