There are perhaps 40 additional gravesites at the cemetery that are marked only with fieldstones, or that have headstones that are no longer legible. Vi states that 61 additional graves are marked with creek stones (Creek stones have no markings)

Cemetery is well maintained. Someone mows it regularly, and there are flags and other seasonally appropriate decorations.
