This cemetery was called Old Nichols Cemetery on the Ridge. Some now call it the Souter/Sharp Cemetery after the only two remaining stones found.

It is located in the SW 1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 2, of Santa Fe Township. Southwest of the intersection of Pollman and Camp Joy Roads. As Pollman Road curves toward the south, to the right a field road ascends a slight hill. Follow the field road along the edge of the woods almost to the second curve in the timber line. Two graves are located a distance north in the woods. There are quite a number of concrete blocks scattered with the tombstones. There might be others buried here with disintegrated wooden crosses.

The History of this cemetery is published in Clinton County Historical Society Quarterly 19-4.
