To reach this cemetery in Independence, from the intersection of Hwy 24 & Blue Mills Road, go east 3.7 miles, turn left on N. Perrin Road, go .4 miles. The cemetery will be on your right between two houses.
Judging from the stones in this cemetery it was established in the early 1800s. The earliest burial is shown as 1819 and the last was 1887. I was not able to find out who owns and maintains it.
Some call this small family cemetery the Adams Cemetery, but the first burial is a Drake and old maps have it listed as the Drake Cemetery. There is no sign at the cemetery.
This includes all existing and legible readings from stones from when I visited this cemetery on Aug 12, 2007.
