Surveyed by: Susan Taylor Woodson; updated by Ginger Ballard 14 May 2003.
Comments: The cemetery lies in a hay field and is surrounded by an old fence which is not intact. It can be seen from the road. While the brush has been cleared off part of the cemetery, that brush is piled within the cemetery. Probably half or more of the enclosed area is covered by overgrown flowering shrubs, rock lilies, and the cut brush. The remainder of the area is covered with tall grass. Groundhogs are numerous and the cemetery is in great need of attention with some of the stones having fallen. It is not possible to determine how many graves are located here.
