Davis Cemetery

Wells Township, Section 33.

The cemetery is about 5.5 miles southwest of Moulton.   Take Highway 202 south from Moulton about 2 miles to 570th St., take 570th St. west for a mile to 300th Ave., then south on 300th Ave. to 580th St., east on 580th St. about 1/2 of a mile to the cemetery.   580th St. is a level B maintenance road, so there are times that it may not be passable.   The cemetery is about .75 miles north of the old ghost town of Dean.
