Located on Fannin St, between 3rd and Front St. in Richmond
This cemetery is not named, but the largest number of names found was that of the Dyer family. It is located near the corner of Front & Fannin Streets in Richmond, directly behind a house.
Across the road to the north is a large home and farm, which may have been the home of the Dyer family.
The cemetery is fenced and the stones were in excellent condition. The graves were recorded beginning on the west end and proceeding to the East end (the house), rows from left to right.
