"This small family cemetery sits on top of a hill on a gravel road located 4 miles south of Prairie City and approximately 1/4 mile east of county road S6G. It is fenced in and well kept. Although there have been no burials since 1910, the cemetery is a mix of old and modern stones. There are two stones for George Rinehart and his son George W.; the original old style stones and a more modern obelisk stone for the family which also includes birth and death dates for George's wife, Elizabeth. The family name is spelled RHINEHART on the obelisk.
Rows are listed beginning at the cemetery gate.
