Take Route 161 to Slant Road to Gebke Road. When Gebke Road turns to the left, keep going straight on the farm road, past a house and then turn to the right between the old barn and a parked school bus to the about 1 acre of trees. Go down the slight incline. Enter the grove that has an old wire fence around it from either the south or east side. Stones are dotted throughout the cemetery, mostly at the top of the hill. Most of the stones have fallen down. There are two large bases with no stones remaining. Be careful of downed wire fencing near the Patheal graves.

This cemetery is "Inactive" and "despoiled", no burials are shown during the last 120 years.

The history of the cemetery is published in Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly 19 - # 1.
