|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This old abandoned cemetery is located on a ridge top between Swain Memorial Park and East Deep Creek Road.
You can access the cemetery from Old Deep Creek Road on what is now private property. You can reach the cemetery from the NW corner of Swain Memorial Park Cemetery.
The cemetery sits beside a fenced-in dog lot above a private residence on Old Deep Creek Road. 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.
