Search West Family Cemetery:

This cemetery is located on private property on the north side of Wootten Road near its intersection with Hudson Road.

It is mentioned in The Churches of Delaware by Frank R. Zebley (1947) as one of the few local cemeteries featuring "roofed-over" graves. Zebley reported that the graves of John C. West and Mahala West were the "most recent" of the roofed graves in this cemetery. However, they're now the oldest of the four marked graves there, suggesting the presence of older, unmarked graves.

A 2008 survey revealed the presence of an unmarked vault just outside the fence.
