The cemetery is located behind the Horace Clark residence,
but their name wasn't visible the day I was there so I had a time
figuring out the house. For anyone searching for the house, it is
the first house on the left just past the Long Creek Water Association
Building. Including that bit in the directions would be very helpful to
another person. Mrs. Clark was very pleasantand allowed me to go to see it.

One must hike about 1/2 mile down a dirt path to get to it. Wear sturdy
shoes because the land is hilly, sometimes muddy and overgrown. Sadly,
the cemetery is badly neglected with many stones broken and nearly invisible
behind the the brush. I almost missed it! Some graves are hard to see even
within the cemetery.
Wish I'd thought of pruning shears!
