Description: Perkins Cemetery is one of the more difficult cemeteries to find because it is hidden by trees. Walking along a chain link fence will lead you to the cemetery, which is in poor condition. It is a family plot, with only two markers, only one of which is still standing. The family has decided to let nature guide the care of the cemetery, but it is protected from potential vandals by a closed chain link fence and gate.
