About this Cemetery:
This old cemetery is located in rural McCamish Twp close to the Douglas County line. It is situated on a section line between two farmed sections, well in from the road, and is marked with a little outcropping of trees to the north of the trees that mark the section line that is far enough in it cannot be seen from the road to the west of the cemetery.
Little remains today of this cemetery. Within the copse of trees are two stones, buried within vines and bramble. On the west side of these trees is a clearing with the Broom stone. No other stones can be found today.
In the early 1970s, this cemetery was transcribed as part of a project by the Johnson Co. Genealogical Society, and donated to the county. Since many of the stones are now missing, I have added the now missing stones from this transcription, so they also may be remembered.
This old abandoned cemetery is on the section line of privately owned farmland in western Johnson County near Eudora, in Douglas County.
