This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Directions:
Find the Huffman Covered Bridge on a map. At the west end of the bridge is the intersection of Co Rd 1075S and Co Rd 600W. Go south on 600W about mile. Just before the road goes under Interstate 70, there is a dead end road going off to the right. Follow this road up to the old white house. From the house, go due east through the old pasture about 100 yards to the cemetery.
Condition: Good
We restored this cemetery in 2003 with the help of several descendants. The cemetery needs to be mowed periodically. Several of the stones are in the power line right of way and could be damaged if the power company need to cut trees that are allowed to grow in the right of way.
