There is a cemetery that I learned of here recently near
Hennepin off Hwy 7. The road
that runs off 7 to the south is Mountain View road. Turn west (right) at the
first intersection and you will pass one house on the left side (south) midway
(Richard Jolly owner of property) to the next intersection: If you pass
the under ground house on the right side (Mr. Stamp) you have passed the
gate that leads to the sight. A road leads from the gate around a hill. Just as you
start to go right around the hill turn left and look for some old abandoned farm
equipment (reaper) and a creek going to the right and just a long the tree line
is the cemetery. It is called Five Mile # 1. Many of my people are buried here. The
stones are in good sharp but cows has knocked over many of them. This is the old town
of Homer. I only learned of this two weeks ago from Sadie Munns, a cousin of mine. My cousin,
Ray Williams, lives near the cemetery and he showed it to Sadie and gave me directions
