Lyons Creek Road which winds through the hills from south of Junction City to Woodbine. We found the cemetery where Sarah Beckel Schultz and her husband, William are buried. I don't have my Beckel history here with me but I think Aunt Sarah was the oldest of Sadie's daughters. One of Aunt Sarah's sons, Leslie Schultz and his wife, Fannie, are buried in the same line of graves. Les's daughter, Ila Jo Schultz Norris, is buried between the two couples. There is a large cedar tree close to the graves. We drove up a steep hill on a rock road and at the top was Mt. Zion Cemetery. It's small and maybe half-filled with graves. There's a hedge row on the north side. On the south is a farmstead. There were clucking chickens and a braying donkey keeping us company. Otherwise it was a peaceful hilltop. It's a typical little country cemetery, well kept up by the caretaker.
