Description: A very simple, elegant design is obvious in this cemetery, which is broken up into square sections with grass pathways separating one section from another. Fish Cemetery is a large family plot of nearly 30 markers, with all interred there related to the family in some way. Interesting markers can be found here as well, including a unique marker carved to look like a pile of rocks with a cross lying on top of it.
