Cemetery Status: Inactive
Walled area approximately 14 by 29 feet made out of stone blocks. No monuments. However, there are rocks positioned that could be marking several graves. Also other graves could be around the walled area.
According to Lee Dickens, whose family acquired the property about 1923, the property is called the "Ross Place" after the family that owned the property for many years prior to 1923. Therefore, the cemetery may be the Ross family cemetery, but it could have been the owners prior to the Ross family who are buried here.
