The size of the cemetery, from a WPA map shows approximately 5 acres. The map displays a large Catholic section and adjacent to it, a large Protestant section. There are but a couple tombstones from the entire acreage that have been located. No one to date knows anything about how a cemetery this size went from 5 acres to just a few tombstones laying on the ground. This township, and area, near where the cemetery once stood, has been heavily logged and mined area over the years. We are working with local churches and government to locate records and/or maps of the churches or cemeteries.
