"These were the only stones found however, several iron stakes, which probably marked grave sites, were found.

There is no longer a road through this area but an outline of an old road around the top of the ridge is still visible. It is a very beautiful wooded, quiet, peaceful, spot."

"Our thanks to Faye Turley (Mrs John) for her help in finding this "lost" cemetery and for guiding us there."

Reorded by Rebecca Smith, Jane and Hoyt Haas 3-2-1984.
