Rt. 52 at Varney, turn onto Oldfield Branch Road, go about 1/2 mile (drive on left will say Dean Br Road) beside the sign Dean Br Road is a locked gate. The cemetery is through that gate and off to the right about 1000 yards.
This is PRIVATE PROPERTY. The newer graves are on flat ground and the older ones up a steep hill in the woods.

What tombstones are here are "baby" stones, yet all but two are children. Weather has worn letters and numbers off of these tombstones and two are completely covered with a thick blanket of moss. Once one gets adjusted to the area, the tombstones are recognized along with the sunken graves.
Not every one has a tombstone.

A member of the immediate family and I have looked at the older section of the cemetery; there are 18 graves with no tombstone and just a rock placed at the head and foot. The trees and growth that shielded these unmarked graves was cleared March 2016.
A Special Thanks to Woodie Dean and his wife, Ann; for the upkeep of this cemetery and finding the names of everyone buried here.
