The Burial Ground once had 7 graves, with the oldest being that of William Yount who was buried in 1837. The last known burial was Jonathan Arberry Young in 1972. From the Vermilion County Cemetery site: "The cemetery was once surrounded by a wooden fence until the farmer of the land around the cemetery got tired of working around the stones, and dug a hole to bury the stones and farm over the cemetery..... supposedly with permission from Yount descendants.

The other 5 Yount stones once in this cemetery were: Joseph (1843), Harriet (1850), Frances (1855), Olive (1859), and Sarah (1869)."
