      Survey - Surveyed on December 7, 1972. Visited and photographed in March 2005 by Milton Forsyth, who also revised the location description. Directions to the cemetery were provided by Mr. Roland Rogers, an area resident, and the homeowner kindly permitted a survey and photographs of the existing site.

      Graves, Marked [1972] - There were 6 marked stones.

      Graves, Unmarked [1972] - Uncertain as to number of unmarked graves.

      Status [2005] - The small area of the cemetery is overgrown with trees and vines and is not maintained, but is acknowledged as a burial site by the residents of the area. Some trash has been piled in the cemetery and around the edges. The widening of the lane to become Purefoy Road possibly intruded on the south side of the cemetery. The extensively engraved stones read in 1972 are either missing or broken into fragments. The located pieces were photographed - a search of the site might turn up additional pieces.
