“This cemetery started in 1890 and is still used occasionally. When I was there it looked as if they had put in another section to add more burials.”
“This is a very small cemetery which has been revived after some years of neglect, with more burials in the last few years. It is situated on a hillside just off the road, in the Rock Creek area near Sassin.”
“The inscriptions on grave stones were first copied on Aug 24, 1999, after which I compared with the Sexton files provided me by James Kintschi, a member of the cemetery board, which manages this cemetery. Care of the cemetery is done by families of those buried there as well.”
“I walked and read this cemetery in Aug of 1999. I then revisited it on Sep 20, 2006, reading it again using my digital camera. I have a photo of all existing and legible headstones or markers.”
