Total records = 8.
Travel down Highway 30 towards Hansen, turn right on to Rock Creek Road. Then right on 3800 E.
This is a Pioneer cemetery, back when the Stage stop was being used. Condition is not good. The cemetery sits out in a field. There are some unmarked graves. No new burials.
I have transcribed from readings I took when I visited the cemetery and copied all the headstones on May 21, 2001.
