 I was informed by Philip Lewis, who accompanied and directed me to this old burial ground, that was an old burial ground when he was a small boy at home with his mother who lived about one quarter of a mile northwest of its location.  Mr. Lewis was born near that vicinity in 1870.  This burial ground was situated on what was then unoccupied territory between the claims of Daniel Perryman and Lafayette Marshall.

At the present time there is no inclosure around the plot and the land around it is cultivated, leaving the plot a space about twelve feet in width by twenty-five feet in length, grown up in briers and weeds.  Unable to make any estimate as to the number of graves there were there.  No doubt there are several graves that have been lost and plowed over in farming the surrounding land.

There is only one marker with inscriptions in the plot and that is in the form of a small monument which is of marble, a square tapering shaft about five feet high with six inscriptions on the four sides.
