The former home of Josephus Younger still stands across Chub Lake Road from this cemetery at 1050 Chub Lake Road. The cemetery itself is adjacent to Chub Lake Road and in the front yard of the house at 1055 Chub Lake Road. The house at 1055 Chub Lake Road was several decades ago the home of Thomas Owen Pass, Sr.(b:11 Dec 1896, d:25 Sep 1977), a grandson of Josephus Younger.
