If you know of someone buried here that is not listed, please use our  Cemetery Submission form to have the information added.  If you have a photo of this cemetery or a photo of a tombstone in this cemetery, I would love to add it to this page. 

This was a fairly small family cemetery, with maybe 30 or so grave sites. Sometime during or after the 1960's or 1970's, all of the headstones disappeared and it is now the corner lot of someone's yard. If anyone has pictures of the neighborhood that includes the headstones that were there, or any headstone photos, please let me know so I can add them to the cemetery page. Peggy Horton was successful in uncovering a DUKES stone hidden beneath the sod.
