Additional Notes:

Local oral history says regarding Alford Holder & Maggie Snyder that when one of them died, the other committed suicide.

The following are said to be buried in this Cemetery but have fieldstone Markers with no engravings.
Christopher Snawder
Christopher Snawder Jr.
Infant of Frederick & Ella Snawder
Infant of Wilmer & Ocia Whitlock

A fieldstone marker also exists here for an unknown Civil War soldier as his body was found in Christopher Snawder's barn loft frozen to death.  Mr. Snawder buried him, as he found no identification on the body.

Donald Thompson was the first person brought up on this Hillside Cemetery in a Hearse in 1978.   Up until this time, all others were either hand carried or taken on a sleigh drawn by mule due to the the path and bridge leading up to the cemetery being inaccessible by motor vehicles.

My thanks to Barry Lawson and his wife "Cookie" who were kind enough to take me to several cemeteries that I would never have found without their assistance. - Alan Murray
