|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
No markers remain. As best as I can determine, this cemetery was a pauper's resting place and now there is no evidence it ever existed. The old hospital that was near the cemetery (and which housed many of the local indigents) no longer exists and the area is now built with houses and a few office buildings. I have spoken with a local coroner who said he walked the area looking for evidence of grave sites and none could be found. Graves were probably rarely marked, and if so, possibly with wooden markers or loose stones that have not survived the ravages of time.
The facility operated as a full-service acute care hospital from 1849 until July 1, 2007, when acute, emergency room and all ancillary services were discontinued. The Long Term Care Unit closed December 1, 2011.
