I have not visited this cemetery,  having only learned of its existence in 2000.  Since I have not been to the site to confirm its location I am not positive that it falls within the one mile periphery boundary set for my cemetery study.  It is shown on the 1859 Gillett map of Madison County and preliminary research indicates that it lies on or very near the one mile limit of my study area.  The location is on a dead end road which runs west of West Eaton and the cemetery is shown on the 1859 map to lie on the north side of the road near the center of Lot 79 of Township #2 (Eaton).

Because I have not visited this cemetery and there are many clear errors in the copy of the undated and unsourced list that I obtained, I am not responsible any errors which remain.  Use at your own risk!

The old list (with some corrections and clarifications) says:

Located 1 1/2 miles west of West Eaton, School District #3.  This is a very old cemetery in an orchard on the hill above west Eaton, toward the old Jesse and Rob Jones place.  This cemetery has grown up to apple trees, and there is no fence, thus the farmer's cattle roam though it at will.
