      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on 3 May 2002.

      There was a church at this location years back, according to Ms. Mary Champion, 80 years of age, who lives down the road and has family buried at the cemetery, but no trace of a church exists currently. There appears to be sufficent space for additional burials. The cemetery has many unmarked graves, some of which have rough stones indicating burials, some have faded funeral home markers, unreadable. There is a whole section on the front left that is dotted with short rough stone
      markers that are obviously grave markers, but no indentification. A pretty little statue on the front right has no identifying marks. The graves are scattered, with family plots in various locations. Honeysuckle scents the air and large trees shade the tombstones.
