McDonald Cemetery is located in Section 176 on Joe Moore Road (now known as Marion Martin Road), near Old State Road 62, some 100 yards from the road, along a fence row (Southwest).
Luanne Stahly <> and Barbara Cole Marsh have trying to get this site cleaned up, as demonstrated by the photo at right from the Spring of 2003.
