Located in the area known as the Ponderosa, about 20 miles North of Parsons. Pass the store and boat dock, go south on gravel road for a few yards oak tree at edge of road on left side of road to the right of oak tree is a wagon road. Walk to left of tree halfway up hill there are 3 rocks no evidence of unmarked graves hard to find. We could not see rocks from road. Perhaps if we had known exactly where they were we could have seen them. This cemetery was indexed by Blanche Tuten and Margarett Alexander on December 22, 1977.
