Location: From US 20, head north towards Breckenridge, then turned W on FM 576. At Eloian, there's a road sign for Plum Branch Cemetery at country road 296. About 2/10 of mile there is a fork in road, with no sign; turn left and follow road for about one mile. You'll see the cemetery off to your right.

Cemetery is about 70 yards square with a 3-foot high metal fence. The east half of the cemetery appears to not be in use. Rows run east to west. We canvassed from south to north.
