From the intersection of Highway 9 and County Road 16 (going
south towards the town of Eldrige), go 3/8 miles north. It is next to
a farmer's field on a bluff near the creek.
This is a family plot containing the Erickson Family.
When I visited there on Feb 22 2002, I walked north about 3/8 miles
through a farmer's field to find it. I found the cemetery because of
the fence posts on the bluff next to the creek bed.
I went around and could only find one headstone that has fallen to
the ground. Because of the wild rose trees, logs, a ton of underbrush
I could not located anymore headstones. This is a good example how we
don't respect the dead, especially the ones who settled and worked the
land in the 1800's, the pioneers of the area.
I also compared my findings with Cemeteries of Polk County Volume
9, Red River Genelogical Society 1990.
