Comments: This cemetery is by tradition at the camp site used by part of John Cox’s company after the skirmish at the Glades during the Revolutionary War. The cemetery was started after the troops hanged a neighbor, a Hampton who was a Loyalist sympathizer. After his death his father marked his grave with rocks. Before home construction in this area there were several graves marked with field stones. All but one of them have been removed and there is little evidence of the cemetery now.
