Condition:
This cemetery is unfenced but mowed.  There are four graves in front of the church. One tablet is leaning on a tree and another is leaning and facing the wrong direction. The stack stone needs to be cleaned. On the north side of the church is a plot of plants with a flag.  This may be the grave of Eli Gathright, Civil War Veteran.  Northwest of the church is a small house.  Behind the house is small stack stone that has been broken and repaired. It is for Thomas Barber who was killed by a train on a railroad trestle. Supposedly there used to be more graves in front of the church.
