The cemetery was started when the remains of a cowboy was found under a tree near by. There are 6 graves within the chain link fence marked and 1 unmarked adult male. North of, to the right of the cemetery are two burials under an old overgrown Cedar tree. One adult male with sea shells covering the grave and 1 male child. Behind or West of the fenced area, is an area located with numerous native stones marking unidentified burials for adults and children of both gender. About 16 in total. Call ahead for access to the road leading to the cemetery. Although the cemetery is deeded to Brown County, it is surrounded by private property owned by the Dietrich family. Surveyed and recorded in June 2008 by Doris Teague and Clay Riley C.R.
