At the time of this survey, (1999), the cemetery appears unmaintained. It is covered with overgrown lilacs and native brush and weeds. In addition, several headstones have been destroyed or tipped over. Also, there is evidence of badger and ground squirrel holes everywhere.
A survey was done in September of 1999 by Virginia (Ottosen) Engelhardt and myself. It appears that the latest burial was in 1953. This list is the same as what was copied by Margie Robertson and Lorraine White in 1973. Additional names have been added from family.
