This is the Old Cemetery it is down the hill you have to go through the Cemetery about 1/2 way and on the right side is a gate that leads down the hill to the Old Cemetery. I was told that most of the people in the old Cemetery dyed of Tuberculosis, Typhoid Fever, and Polio. Most of them dyed before they had to have vaults and were buried by their families so the their was not funeral home involved. There are a lot of unmarked graves and most of the people who knew who the graves belonged to have passed away.
