      In October 2005 Jane Pyle and Nancy Simons recorded 6 gravestone inscriptions and noted four depressions marked with fieldstones. The site is an abandoned farmstead in logged-over tract. Jim and Bev Wiggins visited the site with Dennis Brooks on 4 Oct 2008. A huge boxwood covers part of the cemetery. Nearby are the ruins of a house with part of the chimney still standing. On 29 Aug 2013, Jim and Bev Wiggins revisited the site accompanied by Fred Ward, the developer's representative, and Charles Eliason, surveyor. All of the grave markers were photographed on this visit. View #2 of the cemetery. View #3 of the cemetery.
