There is a small cemetery about two miles west of Hereford on State Highway No. 7 where only Fleetwoods and their relatives are buried. It is about seven miles southeast of the Big Flat Cemetery and is easily found as it is right on the highway. It is located on the homestead of Asa Fleetwood who donated the land for Cemetery purposes at the time of a scarlet fever epidemic in the 1890's.
