North of the railroad and Big Creek, around the bend, past two houses, now standing, is an old wagon road that goes up the south side of Blackfork Mountain to the Sam Little place. On top of the mountain and to the left a few hundred yards is the Little Cemetery, which contains nine graves.

There are only two or three tombstones in this cemetery. The condition of the road made it impossible for Mrs. Gilbert to go to the cemetery, but she knows the persons buried in the cemetery.
