From BB & D turn west onto 207th Street. At the end of this road after it turns to the north there is a locked gate. Walk west from this gate toward the Crooked River. The cemetery is located on the north of the lane quite a distance from the gate. According to my informant, Rocky, there are 40-50 stones in the cemetery.
