This cemetery is located on the West Branch of the Otsdawa, just above Starr Road, near 
the home of George & Carol Thayer.

The cemetery does not face the road as one would think it should. Level. A good stone wall
on three sides. Fence around a few stones in the center is good. Stones very readable, only
saw one down. Many rose and berry bushes. Could be very nice if cleaned up.
