This cemetery is not fenced, mowed, or maintained. Three of the four
corner posts are standing and most burials seem to be in the northwest corner
of the cemetery. There are some large granite stack stones that are
leaning badly or already fallen. The tablets that were found are on the ground.
There is a very large tablet for Angeline Chadwick and her infant daughter
that has also fallen. Gravestones for 11 people were found and are linked
with biographical information.
