All that can be seen at this time are slight depressions in the field with some iris plant leaves. The depressions are visible because they have thistles bushes growing in them. There are no marked graves. Location of cemetery clearly shown on old plat maps.
This area was known as the Clara Walker Place in 1929. Prior to that it was a Thomas family property.
The cemetery is just over the border in Hancock County, but is reached through and is historically related to Baldwin County. A rock formation known as Thomas' site is slightly north of this cemetery.
This is the same cemetery as Unknown Cemetery #22 on Gumm Cemetery Road in the Hancock County Cemeteries website at http://friendsofcems.org/Hancock. Cemetery appears to be in Hancock County based on DOT and topographic maps.
