Located on private land at the corner of Rte 67 and O'Hara Rd. The cemetery is situated high on a knoll, in the forest, behind the farmhouse. It is in very poor condition and the forest is reclaiming the site. The photo to the right was taken by E.P. Merritt on May 10, 1936. Courtesy of Kelly J. Galeas, his granddaughter. The Sylvester Pierce Family Cemetery is located approximately one mile from this site.
