Roxanne, here are the directions that you requested. It should not be too hard to find with them. It took me along time looking on my on. I am gradified that someone wants to help. I Have no ancestors buried there but think that these old pioneers deserve more respect. I have not been able to clean myself because of two shoulder surgeries but that is now improving. There is the possibility that a Boy Scout may restore the cemetery as a project for Eagle Scout. He contacted me about directions and looked at it. He has said that he wanted to do it this Spring so maybe that will solve the problems. It is so small that it really would not be too hard and very easy to keep up once done.Keep me advised and if you have trouble finding it contact me.
