This was the only grave found in the area.

The grave is located on the Bar R Ranch owned by Ruel and Joyce Sanders in the area known as "The Dairy Pasture". The land was sold but surely the grave is preserved. When the grave was discovered, Ruel had sold some gravel and in that process the grave was discovered. He immediately told them not to get gravel in that area and as long as he lived, he protected the grave.
