Several tombstones disappeared during construction of the pond and of the three remaining, one is in excellent condition, one is broken into two parts and one is badly smashed but still legible. The city of Jacksonville can be seen from this cemetery which is in the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter of Section 10 in Township 15 N Range 11 W.
