About three miles from Herford on the Fred Boyer ranch, there is a small burial plot. It is two miles off State Highway No. 7 (Unity Highway) and on the opposite side of Burnt River.

Thomas Boyer donated the land for this small cemetery. To reach it you take a dirt road at Hereford, cross to the south side of the river and turn to the west. This is a family plot, it is fenced and is cared for by family members.
