      Comments - The developer, Centex Homes, set the cemetery aside off the southeast corner of lot 65 in the subdivision plat [PB 80:28]. Not originally included in the initial lot 65 property sale in 1998 [DB 1794:505], the cemetery parcel was given to the owner of this lot by Centex Homes in May 2002 [DB 2602:148]. The lot 65 property, now including the cemetery listed as "Parcel 2," was then sold in Sep 2002 [DB 2724:492]. In 2012 a new owner investigated the records to identify the cemetery area for himself. The cemetery area was at this time being inspected yearly by a member of the Orange County Historic Preservation Commission. PIN 9863-747-671. See this extract of the subdivision GIS display with the cemetery indicated.

      No burials have been identified.
