        This cemetery has been occasionally maintained over the years.  Today it is somewhat overgrown but mostly with tall grass and weeds, with the back part of the cemetery is overgrown with larger shrubs.  The site is very pleasant, but the surroundings are quite messy, with abandoned fields and a former junkyard adjacent.  The cemetery has a fine stone fence on the north, east, and south sides and this wall may have continued along the front west side but could have been taken away during road widening.  Today a set of rickety iron steps leads up a short bank to the cemetery.  There are large old maple trees just inside the wall and indications are that the trees marked the original edge of the cemetery and the walls were put up later.
        The cemetery is 300 feet deep east to west and 100 feet wide north to south.  There is a 10 foot wide walkway leading down the center, with the headstones arranged in rows on either side.  The rows are 12 feet apart and the stones are not closely spaced with about 3 to 3.5 feet allotted for each grave.  The headstones are at the west end of the grave and face westward (toward the road.)  No unmarked fieldstones were found but many sunken areas indicating unmarked graves were seen; at least 11 on the north side and at least 20 on the south side.  A large area in the eastern center portion of the cemetery, 65 feet wide and extending across the cemetery, has no tombstones and no evidence of burials.
        An old list of this cemetery had been made by Clezzie Gallup in 1948 and this was apparently modified by Meyer, et al.  In the 1994 field check seven stones from her list could not be found: Lilly Cross, Charlotte Nurse, Mariete F. Nurse, John Preston, Caroline Tuttle, Carrie E,. Winchell, and Mary Winchell.  The 1994 search found 22 stones that were not on the old list: Eli_____ ______, Catherine H. Blowers, Polly Clay, Thomas Clay, Achsy Combs, Brazil Combs, Chancy Cook, F_____ D______ Fisher, F_____ V_____ Fisher, Adeline A. Gibbs, Deward Hale, Lewis Hamblin, Polly Hovey, Ann A. Ives, Derinda Nourse, Barbery Ann Page, William B. Page, Rush W. Putnam, James Rodgers, Mary Rodgers, Elizabeth Twogood, and Joseph Twogood.
