|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located just East of Frankfort on the north side of C.R. 550, south of County Road 35. An old Bapstist Church was at this site in 1800, but the church building has been moved twice since then and new churches built. The original church was an old log church. That first church was organized by Peter Sperry and Nathan Corey.
The current church in is Roxabell.
This cemetery has been confused with the Mt. Zion/Old Baptist/Ater Cemetery in Clarksburg. They are not the same cemetery. Some entries there may need to be moved to this new cemetery, but volunteers are currently working on the problem and most of the entries previously incorrectly placed are now resting peacefully here in their proper home.
