From 224th Street, turn south on Moberly Road. Cemetery is located at the end of Moberly Road on the west side of the dead end road. The cemetery is overgrown with weeds and many stones have been turned over and many are piled around a huge cedar tree in the middle of the cemetery. There are many new stones on old bases in memory of people who have died many years ago. Unfortunately, many of the these stones have been tipped over by vandals.
