Location: Williams Township, 1125 feet east of US 15-501, 10' north of Running Cedar Road.

Additional information: Gerland Oldham reported in 1989 that stone markers had been used by an unsuspecting owner to build a wall. John Clauser investigated the cemetery (calling it Rigsby/Rigsbey/Rigsbury) in 2006 for Chatham Downs Shopping Center, and registered it with the State Office of Archaeology as 31CH803. By 2007 Clauser's flags had mostly disappeared but the site was still recognizable as a cemetery, with depressions, some stones, a little periwinkle.
