The cemetery is east of the road on the right side as you leave Almota. I had to return twice as they would not let me in when it is rattlesnake weather. When I was there it was still very dry and I did not dare to drive up as I might have caused a fire, the grasses were so dry.

This cemetery contains children of pioneer the Pioneer missionaries, and some of their young children. In 1973 the land was owned by Larry Hickman of Colfax. I am not sure who owns the land at this time.

It is said that there were 25-30 graves in this old family cemetery, many without markers now. Some were wooden crosses which have disappeared a long time ago. If anyone has proof of a name who is buried here which I do not have, I will be very happy to add them.

I visited this cemetery on Jun 29, 2007 and read all existing and legible markers and stones, using a digital camera, thus I have a photo of all existing markers. There were some stones I could not read.
