About this Cemetery:
This cemetery is located under a tree in a nicely kept grassy area between two homes. A rough-hewn bench sits under the tree between two stones. Some of the stones are quite eroded. Some stones were obviously broken for some time, and then repaired. There are two empty stone settings for larger stones, and one broken child?s stone. Seven footstones have been placed in a row at the front of the cemetery, two of which are illegible. Behind and around one of the headstones I found two obvious footstones with no markings. These are all the footstones found.
