I do not know if this is the “official” name of this cemetery, but there are no other burials there except those of the Luke surname. It is a tiny cemetery, enclosed in cyclone fencing, and clean, but in need of mowing. Off Hwy. 21, 2 miles west of Preston, go 1.4 miles down McDonald Rd. and the cemetery is 0.1 mile down Luke Rd. on the left; it is in T12N, R14E, on the S20-21 line. In a curve of the road and on a little rise of a hill, it is not easy to notice, even though it is only a few feet from the road.

Luke, G.W. Feb 1, 1889-Nov 13, 1931

Luke, Hannah C. Mar 6, 1857-Oct 6, 1937

Luke, William M. Feb. 13, 1848-May 14, 1930 (these 2 share a double stone)

Luke, Martha d. Nov 4, 1891 (not sure of the 9), aged 77 yrs, “wife of James Luke”

Luke, James d. Nov 15, 1889, aged 90 yrs. (these 2 share a double stone, which is broken through the year of Martha’s death, and is in pieces)
