Mount Olivet cemetery is a very nice and quiet setting. The entire cemetery is covered with a canopy of deep green pine trees. The markers of John and Ellen Jacobus can be found by staying to the right of the cemeteries long driveway until there is no option but to turn left. At that point, the markers are on the left hand side.
