Alicia's Notes: I have always heard this cemetery called the "Opp Cemetery". Harold Opp lived in this area until around 1936-1938 when he moved to San Diego, California...and I assumed members of his family were buried there. It wasn't until Lori kindly shared her information with the site that I learned that a large portion of the "marked" burials were members of the Bihl family. Further research shows other possible burials at the Opp/Bihl Cemetery:

The Menard Messenger
Vol. 10 No. 26
Thursday, April 26, 1917

FT MCKAVETT NOTES
Alfred Jones, little son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Jones, died last week of appendicitis and was interred Friday at the Opp cemetery.
