     This cemetery data was recorded by Gloria Gloss, I walked this cemetery and I'm sorry to say it's badly neglected.   It's really a shame for it's one of Clearfield's oldest cemeteries and many of the early settlers are buried there.  The cemetery is  full of broken tombstones, sinking ground, very high grass etc.  Some buried there are not found in the biography of Clearfield county's history, their headstones are the only mark that is left to show they once were a part of making Clearfield a community. And sadly some no longer have that identity.
