Comments: The cemetery is not visible from Ripshin Rd. Cemetery was fenced, covered with periwinkle and showed evidence of having been cleared of trees and shrubs in recent years. (1997) Some evidence of an earlier effort to re-set older stones in newer concrete bases. Needed fence repaired and herbicide application.
