Kelly, Phyllis, George, and Mary used the method of "dowsing for graves" to find many of the stones. There are also many sandstone markers and they used the dowsing rods to determine the sex of the individual buried there.

Stacey Cemetery is located in Section 36 of Meridian Township. It is on Jolliff Bridge Road 2 miles north of highway 161. Jolliff Bridge Road turns east; the cemetery is on the north side of the power station. It is on a little hill with a gully on the west side and a drop-off on the east. We started on the east side as row 1 with graves starting from south.
