This cemetery is mowed, minimally maintained and partially fenced. The west
side has modern burials and the east side is the old section. There
are quite a few tablets face up on the ground and many leaning as well.
Some stack stones have fallen, most likely pushed over by vandals, as the
bottom sections are still reasonably level. There are also some tops
that have disappeared, possibly as souvenirs. The stones in this cemetery
need to be reset properly before more disappear.
When this cemetery was laid out it was called the Guynn Cemetery. Here
is the first legal description:
