Most of the graves were moved to Atkinson later. Located on Fred Jansen’s land, two miles East on the old highway and five and ½ miles north of Atkinson. Surrounded by lilac bushes. The old highway to O’Neill is now 877 avenue

The three stones were inside a huge lilac bush. Go North from Atkinson on Highway 11, 6 miles to Sign 883 avenue & highway 11. Turn east two miles, Sign 478 road & 883 avenue. Turn south ½ mile. On the west, there will be an alfalfa field, and in the corner of that small field will be a lilac bush. Under the lilac bush you will find the three stones. (you can not see the stones from the road. The alfalfa field is about the size of a corral.)
