Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Jun 10, 2008, last edited Jun 17, 2009:
“The cemetery is on private land, in Section 10, south off of Belsey Road in the Rock Lake area.”
“This is a private family homestead burial site. It was used only by members of the family of Clarissa & George Butts. The first burial in this listing was Rachel Robinson in 1898, the mother of Clarissa Butts.”
“I was not able to physically visit this cemetery, but created my transcription through research of state and other genealogical type records.”
