"Yes, there is a cemetery there!
I found a volunteer who took
pictures for me. It is all overgrown,
and the director there suggested to
come during the cooler seasons,
as they have Lyme disease in the
area."  Terre

"I understand there is a cemetery on the grounds but no stones and only numbered graves. I don't know whether or not the records have ever been found. At present I don't know what the county uses it for but I have heard that the property is up for sale which makes one wonder what will happen with the interments there."   Ginny   ginnyflies@worldnet.att.net
