Cemetery Still in Use No
Size of Cemetery 5 known burials (only 4 stones were found in 2008; a stone could not be located for James R. Williams who was listed on an earlier compilation)
Condition The 4 stones that were found (2008) were probably added many years after the deaths to honor the deceased. They were all the same kind of stone & engravings.
Since visiting the area in the fall of 2007, dozers have removed many of the trees; at that time the stones couldn't be located because of heavy overgrowth of vines and shrubs. Now (January 2008) the stones are on a cement slab with a concrete rim around it. It is not known if this was where the stones were originally; it looks like they might have been moved from another location and placed here.
Range of Burial Dates
Oldest Known Stone: Susanna S. McCuistion d. September 28, 1870

Most recent directions From the intersection of Hwy "E" and East 164th Street travel north on Hwy "E" for 2/10 miles. The road curves west at that point. The stones lie about 30 yards south of the road on a concrete slab in the middle of some tall trees.
