Observations: Small site with gravemarkers (10' x 15') is overgrown with hugh lilac bushes. This site has 3 burials with inscribed stones. The small site is surrounded by a cultivated field with activity suggesting many more graves. The graves are laying east to west in 11 rows with 30 abreast. There could be more abreast but evaluation was stopped when reaching the crop line. Visitors and phone calls are not encouraged by Bell Trucking. Anyone attempting to visit should be very aware of heavy truck traffic on the surrounding roads. Safest access is by the farm across the street from Dreibelbis Mill.
