On County Road 33 go about 5-6 miles west of Manvel or about 5-6 east of Gilby. It is on the north side of the road.
This cemetery is a family plot. The grandson of Charlotte Olson is living on the property. The graves were unmarked except each grave was marked with a rectangle of stones indicating where each one had been buried. One granite marker has all the names listed on it.
The cemetery contains Charlotte Olsen and her five babies. The sixth baby buried there is that of Charles Olson and his second wife. One of the Olson babies are buried in an unmarked grave at the Bakken-Olsen Cemetery which is about 3 miles southwest of this cemetery.
The cousin down the road from the cemetery said about two years ago the family decided to buy the granite marker for the cemetery and at the family reunion they put it there.
I read this cemetery on Jul 26, 2001.
