|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Location: In Chapel Hill Township at 1612 Purefoy Road, 500 ft east off Rogers Road (SR-1729), adjacent to the north side of the road. This is the location of the old Thomas Hogan house, a two-story gray house, which was still standing in 2005. On private property.
Additional information: In 1972 there were six marked stones and an undetermined number of unmarked graves.
In 2005, the small area of the cemetery is overgrown with trees and vines and is not maintained, but is acknowledged as a burial site by the residents of the area. Some trash has been piled in the cemetery and around the edges. The widening of the lane to become Purefoy Road possibly intruded on the south side of the cemetery. The extensively engraved stones read in 1972 are either missing or broken into fragments. The located pieces were photographed - a search of the site might turn up additional pieces.
