The cemetery is located near Hurricane Creek in back of the barn – no proper stones, but there are what might be fieldstones.

During a heavy rain it was not uncommon for caskets and bones to be exposed and washed away – particularly of the earlier burials.

Since so many inmates were elderly and in bad health, the superintendent kept two or three caskets on hand at all times. These were made by a coffinmaker in Bigbyville.
