READ CEMETERY

Jed Alan Carleton compiled the information from June 1989 to Jan 1992. In February 1992 he recorded it with the Delta County Clerk's office. That information is available to any one who goes to the court house and requests to look at the information.

Directions to the cemetery:

From the stoplight on Main and Hwy 92 turn and drive east 2.5 miles until you reach 1800 Road, turn to the right or south and travel approx one tenth of a mile south, turn left on H Road and travel east 2.5 miles. The cemetery will be on your left or to the north of the road. The cemetery is not visible from the road and is located on top of a man made rock hill. All you see from the road is the fence, there is a small area to park on the west side of the cemetery and a very steep trail up to the gate on the west side of the property. Not all of the graves are marked, the information as to whom is buried there was taken from locals and old funeral records. This is a very neat cemetery, as the fact that the hill is man made and the soil is very rocky, where each person is buried there is a very distinctive mound. There are approx. six permanent stones and the rest are either unmarked or have temporary markers on them. The layout of the cemetery is documented in the information at the Delta County Clerks office.
