Notes

No attempt was made to find this cemetery in 2003. In 1967 J. Robert Swank note: There is no evidence of the plot at present. The stone with inscription was located and will be placed in the nearby Singers Glen Cemetery. Jacob Freeze owned the land in 1806 and probably earlier. In 1827, there was $1800.00 added to the tax value for a brick house built in 1826. This house was removed by the Funks in the 1880s and is now occupied by Dan S. Ruddle in Singers Glen. Names of heirs to the Jacob Freeze estate were: Henry, Sarah (wife of B. F. Mitchell), Jacob Jr., John, James, Susan. Jacob Freeze married Catherine Snider, daughter of Martin; Jacob Freeze (Jr.?) married in 1828 Elvira Pierce; John Freeze married in 1806 to Margaret Wideck widow of John Wideck; James H. Freeze married in 1860 to Josephine Palser, daughter of David & Elizabeth; John Freeze, son of Jacob & Elvira, married 1863 to Susan Eaton, daughter of Samuel and Mary.
