Notes

In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "The Whites are to be commended for placing a stone wall around the plot and preserving it. It is not known the extent of the original plot. The settlement of the John R. Homan estate in 1883 by Alex Kerr gives the following names: Mary L. Homan, J. H. Riddle & wife, J. H. Jordon & wife, Chas. E. Homan, Frank D. Homan, Wm. D. Homan & G. W. McFarland & wife Dorcas L. Marriage record of John R. Homan to Deborah Riddle (dau. of John Riddle) 13 June 1827, to Margaret Moore (dau. of Charles Moore) 4 Sept 1821, to Mary Dyer (dau. of Margaret Riddle & Wm. Dyer Sr.) 28 Dec 1837."
