|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This old abandoned cemetery is located on a ridge top beside Swain Memorial Park on the NW side. There is no access by vehicle.
The cemetery sits beside a fenced-in dog lot above a private residence. There are 3-marked graves; those of Uriah Charles Burns, his wife Sarah L Burns and their son, Noah Hezekiah H Burns. There are 4-graves with nothing more than simple field stones.
After a survey of the cemetery it is obvious there is ample space for other graves; but there are no markings of such. Time, the elements of nature and other factors could play a role in not finding other field stones as evidence of graves.
A survey of this cemetery was performed on 11 Aug 2012.
