|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Location: Bestwick Trail at telephone pole #6. Bestwick Trail has been blocked off just before the cemetery. There is a gravel pit access road that crosses Bestwick between the barricade and the cemetery. The cemetery has been badly vandalized and most stones are broken and displaced. The cemetery had a very nice cut stone wall but about 1/3 of it has now been tumbled.
