Martin V. Anderson Cemetery

From Jacksonburg Post Office, Rt. 20 Go South 1.3 miles, turn left, 0.1 mile make sharp right turn up the hill.  Go 0.1 mile and stop.  The cemetery is in the Briars and Weeds on the right.  This cemetery is in very bad condition.  No stones are left standing.  There may be more stones but I couldn't find them.  Most of these were buried with only a corner showing.  There is evidence of unmarked graves as I saw several field stones.  Read by Nora Hostutler 22 Jun 2007.  Additional information provided by Karen Hucko.

d/o J & SS,
age 17/1/9  Stone broken in two.  My first visit I only found the bottom half.  When I returned I located the top of the stone buried under the dirt.
Footstone initials V.M.A. - - There is a large base but no stone found.
Their is evidence of a grave near Martin's with a footstone that reads Father.

At one time there was a fence around the cemetery but it is no longer up and animals have been through the cemetery.  The footstone VMA I thought might belong to Martin but it is located a few feet to the left of the headstone.  I was told that years ago this land belonged to the Anderson's.  The property owner told me he didn't think anyone had been to the cemetery in about 50 years.
