This cemetery was read by Amy E. Armstrong on 19 June 2002.    Many of the headstones in the small burial ground were so badly chipped and broken that it made a full reading impossible.

In this photo, you'll see a large rock with a small plaque which reads:

"The head of the Coltman Family in this township was Joseph Coltman, who came here from Virginia in 1820.  He and his son built a sawmill and a gristmill on the bank of the creek opposite this spot.  Four generations of his descendants rest with him in this ground."
