Located between Circleville & Jonah, S of Hwy 29 on Jim Byers farm (1975), 2.3 mi E of Mileham Creek bridge at Jonah or 4.4 mi W of Hwys 95 & 29 intersection at Circleville. The graves are about 150 yards S of the highway, & were W of the story and a half log home which stood on a rise in the land. Burial plot in the lower flat a short distance W of the rise, & W or SW of a tree growing there in 1975. The graves were marked with stones & enlcosed by a fence until sometime after about 1920, after which fence & stones disappeared. Luther Stearns, Sr. is known to be buried in the plot.
