I've passed by this cemetery a million times but never stopped. It's kind of in an awkward place to pull over and explore so close to the road.  I am sure that the people buried there would be disappointed to be so surrounded by the future. There are 24 graves, 22 of which are legible.  Here's a full list.

It's a very interesting family, with some geneologically active family members who have put together some great sites. And the cemetery is quite well taken care of, which is refreshing in a town filled with forgotten gravesites.
