Notes

Cemetery is not well maintained & enclosed by a wire fence. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "Cemetery is located on the G. W. Cullers farm on the east side of 614,NW of Road 881 & Byrd Storage. There are, perhaps, ten more graves, unmarked. Property formerly Hingardner & Orbaugh place." In 2002 owned by Sonny Side. Comments in the remarks were recorded by Mr. Swank.
