The cemetery headstones were tossed over a hill at the back of the property and are supposedly still there. The hill falls into a railroad bed. The person who bragged about doing this to his neighbors is now deceased. The current owner keeps encroaching on the property. The township mows the little corner left. The Ruritan Club provided the sign designating it as The Steele Cemetery. Deed records show the exact measurements and location of the cemetery by "chains".
