|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Location: In Hillsborough township at the northeast corner of the intersection of Hwy US 70 Bypass and Highway 86 at the northern boundary of Hillsborough. The cemetery is also referred to as "Crestmont." (Note: the cemetery was incorrectly labeled "Mars Hill Cemetery" on a USGS map.)
1973 Cemetery Description: This unfenced cemetery of about two acres is in the care of owner-trustee Ransom Whitted, who inherited the corner property. The area is not regularly maintained. The rear or northern portion of the cemetery is covered with undergrowth and is criss-crossed by paths and tracks that have damaged graves. Vandals have toppled several stones. The southern portion bordering Highway 70 is occasionally mowed, and a brick-edged display sign: "Cresmont Memorial Park" has been placed there. Most of the approximately 246 graves are identified only by metal funeral markers and few of the earlier ones are now readable. About 70 of these graves remain unidentified.
