      Significant events: Gerald Oldham reported the cemetery in 1989. He indicted that it contained 8-10 graves. He and neighbors of the site say there was one stone with a date on it at the time, but it was not located in 2012. Oldham called this the Durham-Riggsbee cemetery. The source of that information is not known.

      Miscellaneous information: Glenn Lazarus and Bev Wiggins visited and photographed the site on 19 March 2012. Large stones scattered around the perimeter of the site suggest that it may have been enclosed by a stacked stone wall at one time.
