It is rectangular in shape. 31 feet long and 10 feet wide. enclosed within a square plot of land, measuring 1/4 acre in size. At one time it was enclosed by a barbed wire fence on round wooden posts with a double wooden gate at the north side, next to the road. Earliest burials date before the 1800's. The cemetery is in deplorable condition. overgrown with weeds and grass. people are using it as a dump site for unwanted trash. there are only
five tombstones left, and they are just lying on the ground. In the late 1750's a church was standing beside the graveyard. Services were of early settlers of German descent.
