ROADSIDE BURIAL SITE
Catalogued November 20, 1974 by H. A. Dieter. Located about one half
mile east of Wisconsin 80 near the former Fred Stibbe farm now owned by
Mrs. Betty James, Section 6, Orion Township. Three legible stones were
found standing near the road's edge. One had been toppled from it's
base but was later set into the ground nearby. The area between
roadside and property fence line has not been cared for in many years.
It has been spared vandalism in spite of the apparent neglect. The
scene is but another example of child burials after which the
respective families moved on causing abandoned and forgotten private
plots to appear in the most desolated parts of the county.
