To reach cemetery drive 7 miles east of Fordsville on Hwy 54, turn right or south 1/2 mile on Shreve Road. The cemetery will be seen on the right just as the road starts to turn west.
This cemetery is now on private land, owner not connected with any individuals buried in the cemetery. In the past 2-3 years the gravestones have all been removed via bulldozer or something like that, if the stones cannot be restored a memorial will be erected with the following names if the landowner will allow. He is adamant against any involvement.
This is a listing held by the Ohio County Library, documented on May 19, 1973. It does not include several children's graves which had only markers with no names.
