Directions: This cemetery is at the top of a very steep hill behind the house at 697 Woodcrest Rd.

Comments: The cemetery includes 6 small grave markers with initials and one larger marker of unusual construction. The large marker includes a pedestal at the bottom supporting three columns which in turn support a capital slab; this construct resembles the Roman numeral III. Names are carved on the fronts and backs of the three columns. Unfortunately, the parts of the larger marker where all on the ground when the cemetery was visited in June 2022.
