The cemetery is in bad condition, I read all I was able to on August 28, 2001. Many more may be there, hidden in the tall grasses.
This is an abandoned pioneer cemtery which has mostly German and Irish immigrants buried in it. I found it in poor shape, with broken headstones and tall prairie grass.
From the the original deed I was able to acquire from the court house, I found out the following. The land the the cemetery stands on was first owned by John and Elizabeth Dippel who sold the land to a church called Ebenezer who was associated with the Evangelical Churches of North America. The land was deeded on April 6, 1888.
