This cemetery is located about a mile from Ravenden on Private property, It is known as the Marthaler Cemetery, Mainly because there are several buried there. The family lived on this land for many years, but never owned it.
In 1955 Lee Baker built a block wall that stand about 4 feet tall around the cemetery to keep the cows out, and he bought new head stones for his grandparents grave. I was told at that time it cost him 500 dollars to have the wall built. There are several stones in this small grave yard but no names on them, some seem to be small like they may have been for a child. I am checking around to see if there is anyone that knows who is in the unmarked graves.

Let's thank Sherry Henson for her help in surveying this cemetery. She would be happy to help you.
