Cemetery notes and/or description:
"This is probably the oldest burial ground in the township and is situated on the northwest quarter of section 7, about one and a half miles south of the Fulton county line and one-quarter of a mile east of the west line of Adams township.

John Grable, who owned the adjoining farm, deeded to Silas Enyart, John Abbott of Cass County, and A. B. Chapin of Fulton county as trustees in trust, as a burial ground for the neighborhood, a tract of land 100 by 150 feet inthe above named section; date of deed October 25th, 1849, but the deed was not recorded until March 7th, 1900. During this time the farm changed hands and the owners claimed the burial ground. It now lies in the center of a field with no road or lane leading to it. It is grown up with bushes and trees sadly neglected and a home for ground hogs where they burrow at will. There are probably 100 graves located here but the majority are unmarked.

According to Isaiah Kreider, who is an authority, a child of Anthony Martin was the first interment prior to 1833, but no stone marks the grave. The earliest interment as shown by the marker is Silas Enyart, died 1844, but we know the Martins who lived here in 1832-1833 has deaths in their family.

A number of the Grable, Buck, Chaopin, Enyart, Louthain, Stoughton, Lunsford, and other families are resting here, but no interments have been made in recent years and the ground is practically abandoned as a burial place.

The following soldiers are buried here; Daius Lunsford, Ohio Reg, War of 1812. Oliver Enyartm Co. E, Twenty-ninth Ind : died at Nashville July 28, 1864. Frank Lunsford, Co. K, Fifth Ind. Cavalry : died August 26, 1892."
