Postscript: Celeste MacCormack visited the cemetery in November 2000. She reports that the cemetery is located 3/10s of mile in from where Five Mile Wood Rd begins at Bethel Ridge Rd.   On right hand side of road in a few hundred feet in the woods.  There is a foot path that goes by it, footpath blocked at road by pile of dirt. Fence still around cemetery, many broken bottles in it.   Calvin and Wessel's stones broken, on ground in 2 pieces, Sarah's stone was still standing.   Trees are growing within plot. The stones of Jacob Finch and Hannah Lockwood were discovered under the leaf litter and re-erected.
