This cemetery is located on private property that was once called Lot 3 of the 20 South Fork Manor lots, which were part of the Lord Fairfax's Manor of Wappacomo, aka South Fork Manor. Hans Michael Stumpf (aka Michael Stump I) received his grant from Lord Fairfax for Lot 3, in SEP 1749, though he settled there with his wife and children before 1746. It is located along the South Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River, on the east side of South Fork Road, south of Moorefield WV (Hardy County).

Further documentation is available at http://www.wvculture.org/shpo/nr/pdf/hardy/98001471.pdf, as an October 8, 1998 registration form of the National Register of Historic Places. It includes an extensive bibliography, as well as a summary of the first two generations of this Michael Stump famly in northern Virginia. According to that form, an estimated 40 family members were believed to be buried in this cemetery; but only the stones of Catherine and Michael Stumpf I and their son Leonard and Catherine Stump were still visible. The registration form also includes a map which shows the 20 lots of the South Fork Manor, on the South Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River.
