From Maud on 3500 Rd drive south to E1340 Rd and turn east to Achena Church. Then two miles south and 1 mile east and then 1/4 mile south off of road EW132. This road ends at a gate to the property where the burial site is, on land allotted to Betsy Hotoke Roll#341.
One needs permission to visit the cemetery because it is private land. It is not possible to drive to the cemetery. You will need instructions to the path which leads to the cemetery and then it is a good hike in through high grass and shrubs to reach the cemetery on foot after that for about a half mile.
These graves do not have much information, mainly they have fallen in from age and the head stones are missing. I have walked the cemetery and am still researching the information.
I visited this family cemetery in summer of 2003. I will add as I find further information.- Tammy McCauley
