This family cemetery is located within the Black River Village on the family
land. Black River Village is located south of Carlsbad, NM. Taking the
highway towards El Paso, TX, there will be a sign directing you to the left,
(east) before getting to White's City (Carlsbad Caverns). The family
cemetery is seen from the road after leaving the village to the East.
Black River Village is several miles from the intersection at the El Paso

Surnames found in the cemetery are "BEEDLE" "SMITH" AND "BOUNDS". There is
also a SMITH FAMILY Cemetery located in Black River Village.

The Bounds family have been living in this desert oasis for many many years.
I do not know where the bulk of the family is buried at, this family plot is
just off the roadway and is very small and very well cared for.
