This Small Cemetery is a two-acre plot in Section 24 of Garfield Township. This Cemetery is located 3 miles north and one half mile west of Clark. There are approximately 20 marked graves, and several un-marked. The land was contributed by Hans Lien in 1892, but there were burials here before it was set aside definitely for a cemetery.
