Notes

The "Remarks" were recorded by the DAR in the 1960's. There may be unmarked graves. In the 1960's the DAR noted that the Catherine Rodes broken stone and another old stone with no inscription may be the stones of Philip Rodes and wife Catherine. Family records say they were buried in this graveyard. Jacob Rhodes was a son of Philip Rodes or Rhodes.
Cemetery is located behind house and in a field. It is about 1/8 mile walk to cemetery. It has an iron fence around it, under cedar trees, and not well maintained.
