Directions:   Take St. Rt. 28 out of Milford towards Goshen.  Pass Buckwheat Road thenWoodville (on right).  Next light, 
turn left on Branch Hill Guinea Pike.  Pass Deerhaven Ct.  Next light is Weber-Cook Road.  After passing through light 
turn right --immediately intochurch parking lot (First Church of Jesus Christ).  Easy access – good parking.  You will
have to unlatch a heavy wood fence to enter.  Some stones in poison ivy covered woods.Make sure to also access the 
top of the hill at far end of cemetery – a few stones hidden up on the hill to right.

Pictures and additional inscriptions by Pamela Smith, CCGS member, during May, 2007.Cemetery kept 
mowed but a lot of stones buried. You can tell some have been misplacedthroughout the cemetery. 
Footstones are not in correct location. I went back a second time just to probe and dig – with not much luck.  James Smith is buried next to an old rooted stump, could not bring it up but have pic of parts of name 
to verify it is his.  I don’t know if a lot of stones are buried 12 inches deep or have been removed.  A 
lot of very old families in this cemetery.  Benjamin Collins and Sarah Collins Smith (his first wife) were 
placed here from a private cemetery on Wolfpen Pleasant Hill Road in the 1970’s.  I found all the stones
that were documented in 1970’s, so the below have been missing a long time.
