Turn west on CR73 and trav el .3 miles to CR131. Take CR131 south for .8 mile. On the west side of the road was a burnt manufactured home and a barn. Approximately 400’ west of the road is a small clump of trees. The cemetery surrounds the trees. All gravestones have been knocked over so the cemetery is not seen from the road. The cemetery is in an open field with no fencing for the cemetery.
