<< In my area I find quite a few cemeteries located in the middle of no
where, ones that are very old and seldom used >>
When I was a child on a farm in Iowa, there was/is a private cemetery on the
land. The family that had homesteaded the farm created it for their family.
There were few burials, but the old cemetery is still there. This is one
explanation for cemeteries in isolated places.
