Comments: The land was originally owned by Tobias and Heinrich Schmidt. This small cemetery is located on a trail and is enclosed by a barbwire fence. Most of the deceased are children who died during the diphtheria epidemic in 1899 and 1900. The Boeses children were grandchildren of Tobias and Justina Schmidt.
