      This abandoned cemetery has 12 legibly marked and several unmarked graves enclosed by a crumbling brick wall. The brick wall was topped by an ornate iron fence, but the iron fence and gate has been removed. Canvassed by Jean B. Anderson (1981). This family was prominent in Durham's early days.

      This cemetery was cleaned up in March 2004 by members of the Rougemont United Methodist Church under the leadership of member John Anderson. Cleanup picture. Pictures of cemetery and grave markers by Allen Dew in April 2004.
