This cemetery is southwest of Keyesport. Take Emerald Road south until you come to the Panarama subdivision on the left. Follow the road to the right as it wraps up the hill. The cemetery is about an acre with the stones dotted throughout. The township mows the grass/day lillies a couple of times a year even though they are not the owners. We recommend you walk carefully, Gloria and a 4" diameter black snake surprised each other in the northwest corner of the acre, both turned around and went their own way. There are many depressions in the ground as though wooden caskets might have collapsed. Many stones are fallen and are now flat on the ground, we didn't see all of these because of the knee-high day lillies, but previous listings show them.

The history of the cemetery is published in the Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly # 19-4.
