From Racine drive east in CR 1, turning left or north onto 302nd Street, continue to for about 2 miles to 785th Ave. The cemetery will be on the west or left side of 302nd St on the south side of 785th Ave.
This is an old unused cemetery and I have no idea who owned it in the past. It does seem to be cared for but there is no evidence of recent burials.
It is situated just east of a gravel pit, and one can easily see Hwy 63 from the cemetery as you face west.
I visited this burial siteMay 15, 2005 and wrote down and took pictures of all of the existing stones. There might possibly be more burials there, which no longer have headstones or markers.- Kathy Pike
