Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery has been considered "lost" and apparently no stones remain.

The following is from a Pike County History Book:
"In the deed given by Reynolds Elledge (son of Benjamin) to the Sleights in 1865, the grantors (Reynolds M. Elledge and his wife Zerilda) reserved one-eighth of an acre, a plot 4 rods square, for "a burying ground for the heirs of the late Benjamin Elledge deceased," the plot being described with great particularity. This burial plot was 60 rods north and 32 rods east of the southwest corner of the old Elledge 80. It lay about 100 yards from the early Elledge log house; it is today traversed by a farm driveway, along which are strewn a few fragments of stones that once marked the burials of numerous descendants of the Boone line."
