This cemetery is located in Section 12 of Brookside Township, just east of Centralia. To reach this cemetery, from Rt. 161, you would turn north onto Jolliff Bridge Rd. Go north approximately 1/2 mile and make a right onto Linn St. The cemetery is about 1/4 of a mile straight ahead, at the curve.

The cemetery is about an acre in size with stones dotted throughout. There are quite a few sandstones marking the graves, but with no names. If you should know of anyone that is buried here, please Contact Us and we will add them.
