At one time there was a tombstone for Mary E. Wilson, wife of John E. Wilson --- January 13 1834---December 18 1871.  It is no longer there.

The tombstone of Sarah Ann Myers, wife of David, is broken off and has recently been moved and now sits leaning against a tree stump. Another broken tombstone has recently been moved and also sits against a tree stump. It is unreadable.

It is rumored Clay Hord may be buried here in an unmarked grave.

I have been told that several large rocks have been moved or thrown away.
