Go to CR 350 N west of 267. West of Romar Drive is house #6518.
Behind the house (north) is a fence line and woods. The cemetery is just
a few feet north of the fencerow. Enter to the east of a small storage
shed where the fence is gone. The cemetery is visible and surrounded
by a new chain link fence.

The cemetery is not mowed or maintained. There is a thick blanket of
myrtle and weeds covering the cemetery and woods. The ground is very soggy
and uneven, making it difficult and unpleasant to walk though the cemetery.
There is some standing water. There are probably more stones below the myrtle
that were not found on this visit. The large stack stone of Moses Bell
is leaning forward with a large tree behind. Isabel Bell’s stack stone is
sunken and leaning. Thomas Harrison’s stack pieces are sliding. The
stack stone for Nicklos Hedsor is broken. The top is laying on the ground
and the rest is leaning. There are two big marble rectangles in the ground
next to each other that may be a large stack stone, but no writing shows.
The tablet for David Wilson is lying face up on one of the blocks.
The other half of his stone and his brother James’ stone are on the ground
next to the two blocks. The stones for Vivann and Charles Free are leaning
against each other. The tablet of William Wilson is broken in half and leaning
against each other.
It is disturbing that there are pets buried near the cemetery. Two
are well marked and outside the cemetery, but there is also a wooden cross
with the name “Lady” carved in it. It is in the southwest corner of
the cemetery, probably on or very near a human grave.
