The cemetery is located north of  Hwy 174 between Leahy Junction and Grand Coulee.  Turn north from Hwy174 at the sign saying Del Rio Grange.  When you get to the Grange Hall - turn right/east on CR 27 NE and continue until you get to CR X NE.  The cemetery is located on the south side of CR 27 NE.   It is fenced with the graves located in the west section of the cemetery.  Near the gate is located a small memorial to the Del Rio Community Church.   Inscribed is "In memory of the Delrio Community Church, The Faith of the Pioneers That Built It, Will Remain Forever 1917-1971, John 3-16".   The cemetery was started in 1908.
 
Fred Pflugrath walked the cemtery in 1999 and then again 30 Oct 2000.  From the appearance, the cemetery is cleaned at least once a year, probably for Memorial Day.  I am sure that there were unmarked graves and at least 20 graves with unreadable stones. Any misspelling and wrong dates, please contdact Fred Pflugrath.   fpflug@nwi.net
