At the end of the sexton's list of Winter Quarters burials is a list of people buried at Cutler's Park, a settlement near Winter Quarters. The exact location of these Cutler's Park burials is unknown. Some records indicate that the Saints buried at Cutler's Park were later moved to a different location which is also unknown.

The location shown above is called "Potter's Field" and is a part of the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Omaha, Nebraska. It is located a short distance down the hill from the Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery, and is also near the location of the Cutler's Park settlement monument. Considering that a "potter's field" is the burial location for unknown persons, it would seem appropriate to use this area as the location for a hypothetical cemetery plat. The above satellite image of Potter's Field is provided by Google Earth. The subsequent "zoom in" view is also a Google Earth image which includes a hypothetical layout of the Cutler's Park cemetery. The grave numbers of the people are as they appear on the sexton's record.
