This cemetery is north and slighty west of Jordan House (2001 Fuller Road), on the grounds of Jordan Park Camp. If interested in visiting it would be a good idea to contact the camp first.

This was originally the Jordan family cemetery, which was the original burial site for most of the Jordan family members and other Walnut Township pioneers, but it was abandoned for modern day Jordan Cemetery. The members of the Jordan family that were buried here were later removed to Jordan Cemetery, and all that remains are 6 or more graves. The stones were smashed by vandals several years ago, removed and then replaced. The two legible stones state these two names: Ethelinda Downs and John M. Rosecrans
