Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located in the Township of Pompey Lot 9 Onondaga County NY The Fayetteville Recorder May 7, 1896:
Known as Indian Burying Ground far from the noise of the thriving town in the edge of a dense wood lies the little cemetery commonly spoken of as Indian Burying Ground. Why this name was given to the sacred spot is not definitely known. The common conjecture is, however, that it was thus named on account of its close proximity to Indian Hill, being but a few hundreds rods remote.

The plot is on the farm known as the David Hibbard farm, now owned by Mrs. Eva F. Hibbard of Manlius and occupied by Charles Ferris. It is about one and one-half miles from the village and some distance from the public highway.

There are perhaps fifty graves which can be easily found. Many are marked by plain white slabs, while others have brown stones and still others gray. Here and there the stones have fallen and the rains of many summers and snows of many winters have erased all writing from them. There are some that are still readable.

This cemetery is just about non-existent (not maintained) and there is no access to it.
