Condition:
This cemetery was fully restored in the summer of 2008 by Jessica Felix and the Page descendents.  It is on property that was recently bought by Ed Britton.  A small plot that surrounds the cemetery will be deeded to the Page descendents. When this cemetery was first visited there were no stones standing.  Most were piled against a stack base in the middle of the cemetery. All but one tablet stone was broken, many in multiple pieces. The land was logged a few years ago, which added to the already poor condition.  Small trees, brush and weeds were removed from the cemetery then the stones were cleaned, repaired and reset.  The result is a beautiful pioneer family cemetery.
 
Buried in the cemetery are Williamson and Elizabeth (McCloud) Page, their daughter Elizabeth (Page) Baber, their son Steven Page, and their grandsons Oliver Page, James Shepherd and Jeremiah Shepherd. Individual headstone photos and biographies can be found at Find-A-Grave .
