The cemetery dates from the late 1800's. According to the Baxter County Cemetery Book, there are three graves of the Hooser family inside the walls that are identified with marked head stones. These are for George Hooser, James D. Hooser, and Robert Hooser. These stones are still present and visible, but the markings are completely eroded, faded, and not completely readable with the naked eye. There is also said to be 3 unmarked graves located inside the wall, as well as 3 located outside the wall. It is apparent that the cemetery has been long forgotten and not been cared for in a very extended period of time.
On July 8, 2012, a crew of Baxter County Jail inmates went to the Hooser Cemetery and did a complete clean-up and erected a sign to marks its location. We were accompanied by Mr. Adam Sheid, the property owner. There are clearly three (3) additional grave sites inside the wall that are marked only with upright field stones, in addition to the three (3) identified sites with manufactured, engraved headstones. We saw no evidence of any graves outside the wall.
