Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is considered a "lost" burying ground in Masing's book "Dearborn County, Indiana, Cemetery Records." It is referenced as site h103 on the south side of North Hogan Creek road near the center NW 1/4 Section 25, Twp 5N,Range 2W. It is located on private land (Brandt in 2014) at the top of a hill and the Marion Canfield homestead could once be viewed across North Hogan Creek but it has been torn down and some of the stones from the old Canfield home have been used to build planter retainer walls on the new home that was built on that property by Mel Green about 2010.

Some tombstones were still visible as late as the mid 1980s but many were broken and missing. This is the resting place of Noyes Canfield (1782-1860) and his wife Francis Tyler (1786-1855) who were the first Canfields to settle in Dearborn County in 1800. Sarah, a daughter of Henry Canfield & Charlotte Chisman (1849-1850), granddaughter of Noyes & Fanny, is buried between them and is the earliest known burial up there.

Noyes' footer is there with the initials N.C. as is possibly another infant. There is also a footer with the initials that appear to be J.P.B., but unknown who this might be.
