The cemetery is on private property. If you are planning a visit, please contact Chad Parson or Cynthia Raleigh. There are many tall briers in the summer/fall, it's much easier to visit in the Spring before new growth starts.

WATTS and ALLEN descendants, Chad Parson and Cyndi Raliegh, with the help of Kathy Parson, Greg Raleigh, and Ivy Widick, visited the cemetery in April 2011. They cleaned and cleared the area. Then they used rods to locate and uncover 6 more stones.

The history of the cemetery is published in the Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly # 20-2.

Chad Parson has created a map to show approximate stone locations. His photographs are in the Photo Gallery
