      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on 4 October 2006.

      There is no good place to park but there is a shoulder in front of the school where you can park with care. The cemetery is almost hidden in the woodsy growth and easy to miss. A flight of steps goes up a small incline to the wrought iron enclosed cemetery. An obelisk engraved "Knight" is surrounded by graves. It is neat and tidy, no longer in use, and about 40' X 40" in size.
