• Members of the Samuel Busey family and later the Peter D. Posey family were buried in a small cemetery (1 rood) on the Busey plantation, located along the road from River Road to the original Busey plantation house.
• Later, graves of Posey family members were removed and buried at Rock Creek Cemetery
• When the plantation was subdivided in the 20th century for development as the Springfield subdivision, two (quarter acre) cemeteries along the path of the original plantation house road were set aside as "not included" (plat attached). According to neighbors, this cemetery was a burial ground for Indians. It is possible that some of the plantation slaves had intermarried with local Indians and this land was set aside for burials of enslaved workers.
• Field stones (possibly former grave markers) aligned along Pollard Road.
• Vinca, periwinkle, and cedar trees throughout site
