Cemetery notes and/or description:
"The cemetery was laid out when the old church was built, the lots in rows, about ten feet wide, running north and south, and were taken by families as follows, beginning at the west end:

First row, Holland, Webster, Devore; second row, Tipton, Hatton, Rutledge; third row, Busby, Auckerman, Braden, Young; fourth row, Busby, Pittinger, Adams; fifth row, Pittinger, Lemasters, Fife, Maxwell; sixth row,_Iiaistea, Rankin. Knox, Ryan; seventh row, McKee, Brindlev; eighth row, Foreman; ninth row, Thompson, Campbell; tenth row, Baker; eleventh row, Beaty, Brown, Green, Dennis; twelfth row, Hugh Birney, John Birney, Sr.; thirteenth row, Lewis, Kent, Robert Birney, Sr.; fourteenth row, George Lease, Wheeler; fifteenth row, Norman, Bargar; sixteenth row, Mehollin, Speer; seventeenth row, H. Thompson, Busby.

In 1858, the cemetery was enlarged by the purchase of fifty-four perches of ground; and again, in 1881, by the addition of two acres. Hugh Brown's head-stone is dated 1822; and those of Margaret, wife of John Baker, Sr., and Margaret, daughter of John Birney, Sr., are both dated 1829. Many headstones have crumbled, until the dates are lost."
