This cemetery is well maintained. A fine storm fence and gate enclose the burial ground. The cemetery is atop a hill and adjacent to Spunky Ridge Road. Spunky Ridge Road connects with Illinois Route 104 just west of Hodges (Muntman) Cemetery at Meredosia Hill and continues eastward to the village of Concord. Turn right off Rte. 100 onto Spunky Ridge Road and drive approximately 3.4 miles (past Dutch Lane). A steep and brushy embankment allows this cemetery to be about six or seven feet above the roadbed at the top of a hill. When we visited this cemetery on September 13, 2007, it was mowed and the trees had been trimmed - all but two of the stones in the cemetery are standing.
