The legal description given for Olivet Cemetery, above, is not in Adams County. 

There is a Mount Olivet Cemetery in De Pere, Brown County just south of the city 
of Green Bay proper, on Erie Street. It is located in the southwest corner of 
Section 31, town of De Pere. It appears, from the map, to be in the southwest corner 
of that section. That pretty much fits your SW SW 31. The exact plot must be
".15.6" if section 31; T(township) 23 N(north) - R(range) 20 E(east). There are
many old cemeteries in that very historic small area of the county, going back
to the 1700's. Allouez, which is the historic French/Metis Catholic burial
grounds and reburial ground for the original Catholic cemetery of the late
1700's and early 1800's; St. Norbert Abbey Cemetery, which for the Catholic
Order;  Greenwood Cemetery - very large public city cemetery; and Billings Farm
Cemetery - small, private. Billings Farm Cemetery is on the grounds of what was 
the old homestead, and it is very near Mt. Olivet (within a few blocks southeast).
