The cemetery is located on private property of Bill Spruiell in the Joaquin vicinity. The cemetery was once a large family cemetery which had wooden and marble/concrete markers. In the thirtys or fortys a fire destroyed all wooden markers, later all other markers were destroyed by logging. Today only one marker is left. When Mr. Bill Spruiell purchased the acreage he cleared the area around the burial site and placed a chain link fence around the grave.
