    I have been looking at it too. as a place close by. I havent been there yet, but I have been told all the buildings aer gone, they were torn down to make room for corn and beans, it was a pretty good size area. I live about 10 miles form there and plan to go and see if anyone whol ives there, knows where the cemetery is. If you go to Google and type in Minersville Nebraska and use maps and use satelite view, It is south of the OPPD power plant near where the Grain evevators stand.
