Contributed by Katrina Johnson, Mar 29, 2001 [michael@up-link.net]. Total records = 28.

From Riverside Grocery on Hwy 5 about 16 miles on the right before you get to the old Colonial Nursing Home. It is located just 3/10 of a mile inside Saline County from the Garland County Line.

An old wire fence around part of it, deep depressions in the area around the fence on the left as you pull into the old gate. Limbs had been cut and left lying on graves and there was a pile of white gravel, some had been used on a few of the graves. There is a Phillips Real Estate sign on the road where you pull off of the Highway marked for commercial property.

Surveyed the first time on Mar 14, 2000. Second survey done on Mar 31, 2000 completed on this date and also photos were taken. Updated Apr 6, 2000 with new informaton. Anyone wishing to view a photo or anything to add can contact me: - Katrina Johnson

Also on far side 5 graves surrounded by white rock and an old wire fence
This is a fairly large cemetery with many graves marked with rocks, took photos from the corners so a person could see just how large it was, very close to the highway, I don't see how they could build any commercial property here without disturbing the cemetery. Unreadable rock next to Moses H. Edds
Unmarked grave next to Ora Mae Rigsby (white gravel had been used on the unknown grave next to hers Along with hers and the other Rigsby graves
