Veteran Graves Joel Martin (stone broken in several places) and Jos. Maxwell located in cattle pasture.
In August of 1960 there was a terrible storm destroying the two trees in the small portion of the pasture that is the cemetery. One tree knocked the tombstone of Joel Martin down and it can no longer be found. Mr. Poetker walked over to the field and confirmed that Joel Martin's grave was where there is now only a stub of a five inch government tombstone and showed us a hole beside the fence where many tombstones had been used by the men cleaning up the storm damage to fill up the hole.
