This cemetery is located in the South-East Quarter of Section 3, Isreal Twp. It is also known as Gambel-Hays Cemetery. This cemetery is very difficult to get to. It is overgrown, and best time to view would be in the winter. It is located NW of the old Steele Farm, on route 732, along a fence line. Surveyed/transcribed July 9, 2001.
