What do you mean under jeff.county it stated the cemetery was gone. Where did you see that references? I can assure you the cemetery is still there.. fenced off from the public and with cows roaming thur the cemetery destroying the few remaining stones.
what are the names of your ancestors buried their?
The town of watertown is supposed to be caretaker for the cemetery, but the owner of the land around the cemetery (Smith) have it fenced off with an Electric fence so no one can visit the burial ground at this time. I have send a letter to the town requesting they check into the matter still have not heard back from them.
