Located N.E. of the old town of Stockdale, just north of Eel River, northeast of county roads 770W and River Road. Formerly called Burdge Cemetery,Section 35 Township 29 Range 5. It is the only cemetery in Wabash county to have a known Revolutionary War veteran buried there. A D.A.R. marker marks the grave of Samuel Burdge.

One Revoluntionary War Veteran.
