This burial ground is located in the southern part of Kinnelon Borough; it is in generally good condition although becoming overgrown from limited care. It can be reached by proceeding north on Brook Valley Road, from its start with Jacksonville Road, for a distance of three-quarters of a mile to a house at the right, which point is 0.1 mile after the road veers right (due east of) the house and near some farm structures. The inscriptions were copied by George E. Carpenter and Russell B. Rankin on March 15, 1925, and checked by Edward J. and Maria C. Raser on April 7 1974.
