This cemetery is located approximately 200 meters into the field north of No. 3 Highway. The land transfer for this cemetery was registered June 7, 1877. This cemetery apparently has been repaired at some time, as all the stones were removed from the original graves and set in one concrete slab. The property was owned in 1981 by John Mohan.
