The Sumners had described this as a large cemetery in an open pasture field. Dorraine Phillips and Genevieve C. Starkey visited this 29 May 2007, with directions from Lester Weddle, and we found the pines surrounding it. We did not locate all the graves listed by the Sumners, and were uncertain of some of the dates due to time and erosion. There are several graves marked with rocks only.

 

Cemetery is completely overgrown.

There are rocks marking other graves.
