Note from Brooke Mercedes: "I do not know anything more that what is listed here. There may be more people, but I only know what is printed in the book. I have never tried to find the cemetery and have no idea if the cemetery still exists. The book says that the barn was still standing on the homestead, but the book was written in 1938. Farther down the page, it mentions that the cemetery was in back of the house. "
