From a report @ 1986:
The Orphans Home was a home for Civil War Veteran's children that had lost their parents.
The cemetery is atop a hill north of the original brick building.
There are 8 markers left. The last burial was in 1952.
Update Oct 2014:
The property is now owned by an out-of-state company and will be turned into a new International Student school.
It is unknown, at this time, whether the new owners will allow access freely to the cemetery or not.
