This Cemetery is located outside of Dexter about one mile in Section 5 of Salem Township. Take Bowles Road (C-4) going northwest out of Dexter and if you pass Halliday Rd., turn around, go back towards Dexter and turn left on the first dirt/gravel road (less tahn a quarter of a mile) going up a hill. The setting for this cemetery is on top of a hill and not easily seen from the road. There is a road of somewhat and I had no problem driving up. However, it was a hot dry day. Depending on the weather and the condition of the road at the time, you might need forwheel drive. The cemetery is well cared for and had been recently mowed and trimmed when I was there. All the veterans had flags and the cemetery had wild white daisies growing within the cemetery. It looked very peacefull and nice. This is not a large cemetery and three tombstones had fallen over, two are very large momuments. Hopefully, these will be taken care of by the township in the near future. The earliest burial in this cemetery according to the tombstones standing is Rev. John Hugg 1871, and the most recent being Caryl Tyler in 1998 as of June 2001. Connie Cotterill Schumaker 2001-2003
