This cemetery is located on the right side of route 1083 north of the Cane Ridge turnoff which is approximately 2 miles north of the intersection of routes 1083 & 626 E. Enter the field over a culvert on the right (east) side of the road and drive straight to the tree line (about 1/8 mile). Follow the tree line left (north) for about 100 feet. This fenced cemetery is a few yards to the right into the woods.
For ease of reference the graves are listed below in alphabetical order. However, to look at a plot map and genealogical connections known for these family members see the link provided. There are fieldstone markers as evidence of several other graves besides those listed. Also see note* at the end of this page.
