This small cemetery with many Germanic immigrants is at the intersection of gravel roads (Cty Hwy 255 and Fairview Ave). To locate: find the newer Johnsonville Cemetery (Hwy 10, south of Lucan). Go south to the next crossroads (County Hwy 255) and take a left (east). Go one mile and it will be on the far northeast side of the crossing. Entrance is straight ahead and to the left, maybe a hundred yards. You need to walk from the road, and it may be muddy if there has been recent rain.
Overgrown, in the middle of a farmer's field
In the 1970's, the state ordered farmers in the area to return the cemetery to its original condition after the farmers started to attempt to plow over it, believing that it was abandoned and no one visited any longer. Some of the stones are broken, some restored and some not. There is a wire fence around the cemetery, and there are many stones with German text, and many are so old that they are a challenge to read.
