Small Cemetery on Hanover Road, Just past the new St Patricks Church.
Plot is totally overgrown and downed branches obscure the graves.

Contains five Brown family engraved upright family stones. Cemetery abutts the property of Carrol and Keith McAleer 1536 Hanover Road.

There are small curved top stones set in what appears to be rows, some gneiss type stones with initials chiseled into top T.S. , J.T., One irregular dark black stone lying down has initial carved on top also.

Many small black type grave marker stones covered by overgrowth could not be seen clearly.

------------------------------------------------
The land that this family burial ground sits on was part of a 100 acre farm that William Smith purchased from Jacob Green in 1816. William and his wife Phebe allowed for the internment of five of their grandchildren on the farm near Hanover Street. The children were all from the same parents, William and Phebe's daughter Rebecca, and her husband John Brown. William and Phebe are also buried here. There are four other fieldstones here. Two with initials carved in them and two have no visible markings.
