Compiler’s Note: The cemetery has recently (2003) experienced a level of vandalism that defies description. Presently, attempts are underway to repair the damage. 

 

Directions: The cemetery is located southwest of the Brownsdale community. From the store (on 197) proceed south 1½ miles on Highway 197. Look for a paved road on the right in a left curve. The side road appears to go straight. Follow the side road to intersection and follow right and proceed due west past several homes and a crop duster hanger (on left). The road will turn to dirt and turn to the southwest. Look for a graded dirt road on the right approx 1 ½ miles past the crop duster hanger. Turn right, cross McDavid Creek drainage (a new culvert installed summer 2003) and follow to end. The cemetery is behind a locked gate and requires a short walk. It is visible from the parking area.
