This grave yard is in the Pelican Pouch area. One way to get there is to go north from Rte 161 on Kannell Road. After you cross Gebke Road, continue onward about a fourth of a mile. At the bottom of a hill, there is a farm road on the right. There is a "No Trespassing" sign for the woods on the left side of the farm road. Go about a half mile to the top of the hill where the road ends at the cemetery. The cemetery is well cared for, there are railroad ties and ivy surrounding, but not in, the cemetery. This is the most peaceful cemetery that we've visited. Last burial was in 1984.

For additional information, you may want to contact Becky Sharp McCormack, a Sharp family researcher.

The history of the cemetery is available from the Clinton County Historical Society, Quarterly 19-2, Page 52 and 53.

S/w means "Shares stone with."
