This cem. is situated south of Hard road No 4, about 1/4 of mile south of hard road, West of the Citro Lake upon a hill, South West of recreation Building about 200 feet. There is a very poor Barb Wire fence around the cem. There are only two stones that can be seen, but Mr. Smith says there are 15 or 20 people buried there. One of the stones is the Gov.
