This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Directions:
Go south of Bainbridge on Co Rd 200E. About mile south of the Bainbridge Elementary School there are two grain bins off the road to the right (west). Follow the lane west past these grain bins about mile, crossing the railroad tracks and continuing along the fencerow to where the lane meets the woods. Veer around the woods to the right, going northwest, then west to the southwest corner of the field. The cemetery is enclosed in a concrete wall about 100 yards to the south of the southwest corner of the field in the woods.
Condition: Fair
Cemetery is surrounded by a wall. There are many mature trees outside of the cemetery which need to be cut. In fact, one tree fell across the cemetery few years ago, breaking some stones. We restored this cemetery in 2004 by removing the fallen trees and repairing and resetting the broken and leaning stones.
