      Survey - This cemetery was surveyed on July 29, 1965. Photographs by Milton Forsyth in February 2005. Picture of cemetery plaque.

      Graves, Marked - There were 9 marked graves.

      Graves, Unmarked - There were 8 unmarked graves.

      Current Status - The square cemetery is surrounded by a dressed stone wall, originally laid dry, about 2 feet wide. The wall has been lowered considerably in recent years. Of the 17 visible graves, 9 are marked, 5 by massive sandstone slabs. The 5 unmarked graves along the west wall are thought to be those of the Lockhart family and have been tentatively identified by Hugh Conway Browning, historian of the Lockhart family (see persons identified as being on the 'Addendum List'). The wall is said to have been built about 1820 by James Phillips, husband of Nancy Lockhart. The middle row apparently contains the graves of children. The cemetery was considerably renovated in 1966.

      Comment - There is extensive historical information on the family in the cemetery file folder.
