Ustick Township Section 24

This area was a very early community. Whats left of the cemetery sits at the top of a hill south of the corner where the Ustick Store was located. W.E. Connelly presently owns the farm (year of this statement is unknown). All that remains is a clump of lilacs and some broken stones. There are supposed to be 20 or 30 graves there, but the readers of this cemetery only found two remaining.
This is the best that can be presented for this old cemetery.

One broken stone reads "died 1868"

Several broken stones when placed together gave up the name of James.

The name of Beth Williams appeared was on one loose stone.

Inquiries about the families that lived near there in past years, produced Mr Charles Rick who lived on an adjoining farm when he was boy, said that F.J. Williams is also buried there. He said the cemetery had mostly Robertson, Curry and Williams graves and he recalled a Smaltz child was buried there.
