On Route 44001 (Ferguson Valley Road) approximately 2 miles north of Spring Run Brethren Church, on the farm of John C. Swigart. About 1000' from highway in corner of field on a shale rib which runs diagonally through the valley. Approx. size: 30' x 30'.

Originally fenced with a 3' high dry wall of stone with a wooden gate on eastern side; all but south wall now destroyed. Burials were made (as was the custom) so that legend on the stone would face the rising sun (east).

Only 16 stones recorded in 1975.
