|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is the third of three church cemeteries known as Laurel Hill or Old Laurel Hill. It was also known as the Junk Farm Cemetery, the land for the church and cemetery having been donated by the Junk family. It is located on Elm Grove Road, 3/10 mile north of the current Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church. The Seceder church was formed as a result of a split in the congregation and the new church (no longer standing) was built across the road from the cemetery. When the church was abandoned, the stone steps were moved across the road and formed a monument in the cemetery. A large bronze plaque was placed on the stone steps with this wording, "Near this site stood the Laurel Hill Associate Reformed Church Congregation organized 1791. It became The Laurel Hill United Presbyterian Church in 1858."
The cemetery has 10-12 illegible and or broken stones also several sunken places that are probably graves, but no markers.
