This Cemetery is located on a private farm out of the family's hands. A wire fence in a cow pasture surrounds it. Today it is run down and torn up by the cows. If you know where to look you can see it from Antioch Baptist Cemetery #1, this Cemetery is located off of Antioch Church Rd. Take Friendship UMC Rd. off of Rt. 23 in Dubois. Follow it down about 3 to 4 miles Friendship UMC Rd. turns into Antioch Church Rd.
