      This maintained but unused cemetery has about 28 graves, six of which have legible markers dated 1923 to 1975, partially enclosed by a fence. Canvassed by Dwight A. Evans and Mark and Dan Coulter (1981).

      Notes from a survey done about 1995: Thomas Rigsbee and Milly Glenn were married November 12, 1824. There were at least seven children born to them. The place chosen for their cemetery was behind the house. Today there are very few graves marked with inscribed stones. There are many fieldstones marking graves over about one-half acre of land. We can't be sure who is buried in all the graves, but death certificates and elderly people who lived near for a very long time helped come up with a list of names and dates. The earliest marked grave is Ev. Elliott, buried in 1923. The last person buried there was Alford Tilley in 1961. There are a few more people who will be buried there.
