A 40' X 60' walled granite area sits within a much larger rectangular area designated by 3' granite posts at each corner. The larger area is approximately 200' by 250' and possibly has many unmarked graves. A few scattered fieldstones can be seen.

The name of this cemetery is from anecdotal accounts and the Kimbrough list, with no clear proof of its name. Anyone knowing anything about this cemetery is asked to contact us.
