MORRISON CEMETERY

Section 12, Township 15 North, Range 13 West

1/2 mile West of Oxville

In 1927 Sara John English copied all the grave stones that could be read, except large stones face down, abandoned in an area with stock running over them. We reproduce herewith her reading which is probably the only record of these early people. We do not know the exact location, except in the vicinity of Oxville. These graves are all abandoned and stock used this old cemetery as a pasture.
