Located west of Lissie across the railroad track on private property once owned by the Harrington family, now owned (1994) by Mose Thomas heirs. Mrs. Ruth (B.D., Sr) Anderson related that Mr. Harrington worked foreman for the railroad prior to 1900. There were two burials at this site, both believed to be men. One burial was marked with a marble tombstone with the name Harrington; the other burial was marked with a homemade maker of cement, which eventually crumbled. A Harrington daughter, Kate married Fred McCormick. Today there is no evidence of either burial.
