According to Mr. Gibson, the cemetery is located in Bryan County Oklahoma on private property at the NE NE corner of Section 2, Township 9 South, Range 8 East. It is north of River Road between Hendrix Road and Chickasaw Road southwest of Achille, Oklahoma. The cemetery lies on private property which is currently in the possession of Mr. Gene Fritts.

He was able to match some of the names with photographs, but several of the tombstones have been damaged and others are no longer visible or have deteriorated over time. Many of the burial sites originally had unmarked stones and wooden markers which no longer exist. Generally, the cemetery is in very poor condition and several of the tombstones are buried in debris.

A cemetery layout provided by the great grandmother of Mr. Gregg Lewis, Caroline (Jefferson) Carnes, lists 118 gravesites. During his two visits, Mr. Gibson observed an additional nine tombstones and several unnamed markers.
