This is an old cemetery, still in use, and frankly, is laid out strange. It's larger than it looks and winds around in the woods in places. Many of the old stones can no longer be read and many others have been knocked over and then set back up in front of another stone. In several places I found whole groups of stones piled on top of each other or propped up one in front of the other. The western end of the cemetery is very open and well kept. The eastern end of the cemetery however, is hit or miss. There are a lot of family plots in this area, many of them with rusty iron fences around them and weeds grown up so high you can't see the stones. Others have part of the fences knocked down, some of them still laying there and others that have been removed. I enjoyed my afternoon tramping around here and will return to obtain some more photos the next time I am in or near St. Charles.
