In Keyesport, go south on Main Street to Layfette Street, turn right. In a block or two, take another right on Whig Street. This cemetery is in the back yard of the house at that intersection.

Larger cemeteries for the Keyesport area are the McNeill Cemetery, the McKendree Chapel Cemetery which is on the Bond County side of County Road and the Duncan Cemetery which is also in Bond County.

The history of the cemetery is published in the Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly 15 # 3.
