Follow the Duke Forest "Wooden Bridge Road" north then turning east until reaching its intersection with the N-S power line clearing (the clearing is passed earlier while proceeding in a northerly direction); the cemetery is 500 ft north of the road. Go up the west side of the power line clearing to the top of the hill about 50 ft. past a stone wall and large stone pile on the side of the clearing, then bear WNW (300 deg.) down the slope for about 325 ft.

      Graves, Marked - There were 3 marked graves.

      Graves, Unmarked - There were possibly 4 unmarked graves.

      Status [1973] - The entire area is covered with periwinkle which is being invaded by poison ivy; several large cedar trees stand to the east and northeast of the row of graves. Three graves are marked by inscribed stones and 3 by rough stones; a large depression marks another grave or excavation.
