To reach this cemetery, drive south on Hwy A from Green Lake for about 7 miles. The cemetery is on the west side of County Rd A, about 3/4 mile south of Center Rd, and just before you reach Miller Rd. It is north of Markesan about 6.5 miles.
This cemetery is on private land in the middle
of a cornfield and has no official name, that I could find. I believe a majority of the graves orginally came from a local farming
family named Bonesteel. As far as I know there are no Bonesteels in the area anymore, but there are descendants
with different names.
This very small cemetery is in very bad shape with many broken and unreadable stones. I wanted to get what information
I could from here while it still exists.
I am afraid this cemetery will not even exist in 50 years.
I have transcribed from my survey of all visible and legible markers on Apr 04, 2005. There may be other unmarked burials in this cemetery.
