This cemetery is on the southwest side of Ross Road, between SR 75 and 950N.  It is on the south side of the 90-degree turn just south of SR 75, on the northeast corner of the Tomahawk Golf Course.  The north few graves are right next to the road, but difficult to see since the stones are flat and the woods are overgrown. The main part of the cemetery is further south, but the tops can be seen from the golf course.  The cemetery is just east of the pond.

This cemetery is partially fenced, but not mowed or maintained.  There are two distinct sections.  The north section is fully fenced except for a small entrance.  It is full of trash and scrap metal and is overgrown with weeds, small trees, and thorn bushes.  Only three stones were found in this section. 
The south section is mostly unfenced.  There are many stones, including some large granite markers that can be seen from the golf course.  It is very overgrown with trees, myrtle, and thorn bushes.  Many large stack stones have fallen and the rest are leaning.  The tablets that were found were on the ground.  Many more have probably sunk.  This cemetery is on a hill.  At the bottom is a man-made pond for the golf course.  The neighbor says that he has pulled a few stones out of the pond when it got low.  He speculated that there may be more.
