Only one tombstone was found during initial survey although others may be laying under leaves and underbrush. Numerous fieldstones and depressed areas were seen. Initial estimate of 60 graves. According to current resident, his father bought the farm from the Gales family around 1955. One burial occurred after that date. All others were prior to 1955.
The tombstone found was a double for twin brothers.
