Located off a dirt extention of Shelby County Highway #206 near Almont. It is out a dirt road to left on top of a hill just past Mane Ranch Circle. The cemetery has a chain link fence but does not appear to be maintained very well in the last few years. Many stones are broken. The cemetery is the burial place of Edward Davis and family for whom a nearby creek and falls have been named. There are likely many unmarked graves in the area.
