In McNabb take SR 89 north about one mile, turn east/right onto 600N and continue 1.5 miles and turn left. Cemetery will be at end of road.

This cemetery is in the northwest part of the onetime town of Mount Palatine. At best it is just a community now.

The cemetery is not accessable to the public, and has been let go, returned to natural habitat. A plaque has been placed next to the cemetery with names of all those buried here. There was an area marker in four metal fence posts and four corner posts with an "H" on one post. No other marker present.

I thank the Putnam County Historical Society for their help. If anyone needs more information you might try contacting them.

I finished transcribing this cemetery on Apr 01, 2006.
