This original cemetery is located on private property located 1 1/2 miles NNE from the existing Lone Tree Corner Cemetery, exact location unknown.
This original cemetery was established in 1850, is located in Wheatland Township on private property with the exact location unknown.
In the late 1950s the gravestones were razed and the cemetery became farmland. In 1992 eight of the original grave markers were found and relocated to this cemetery.
