Leave Twin Falls and head toward Jackpot Nevada. When You reach Rogerson, Twin Falls, Idaho turn right and head toward Salmon Dam, Cross the dam and continue towards Cedar Creek Resevoir (Roseworth), South of the Resevoir but north of the highway to Kitties Hot Hole. Go north East of the boat ramp to the first road on the right,about 1/4 mile. This is the Estes Cemetery. From the Estes cemetery go East by South East about 1/2 mile from the Estes cemetery.This is the Walton-Gumm plot (Cemetery.)
This Plot is on an old deserted home site in the sage brush, south west of the Cedar Creek resevoir dam, south of the resevoir, but north of the highway to Kitties Hot Hole.
The cemetery plot has been fenced and is on a 10' by 10' plot in the sage brush. I believe it is on B.L.M. ground. When these children died it could have been from the same cause. The parents had a homestead here. At the time of death this land may have been in Owyhee county, now in Twin Falls County.
I have transcribed from readings I took when I visited the cemetery and copied all the headstones on Oct 11, 2003.
