207    UNIDENTIFIED CEMETERY - CHAPEL HILL [SHADY LAWN ROAD]

      Location - A rock-walled cemetery which lies behind 709 Shady Lawn Road in the triangle formed by the intersection of Kenmore Road and Shady Lawn Road.


      There are no burials listed for this cemetery.

      Survey - Surveyed in August, 1974.

      Current Status - The cemetery contains rough stones with no identification mark of any kind. It has become a playground for neighborhood children who have torn down the walls and moved stones to such an extent that in Aug, 1974, it has been almost impossible to survey it as a burial ground. Stones are now scattered over a considerable area and few remain in place. Plat indicates that the cemetery was evidently 40' square with walls approximately 3' wide and 2' tall. Base stones at the corners are still in place. The cemetery plat seems to have contained 3 rows of graves with 7 or 8 graves to the row. It is possible that there may also be 1 row of graves outside the east wall. Depressions are indicated on the plat, and stones still firm in the ground are marked in black. The deepest depression is that of grave #3 in row 1, probably the oldest of the rows. The entire cemetery is covered with periwinkle which has escaped outside the walls.
