Cemetery is located just off the street on the right hand side just after the sidestreet to the left. The cemetery is immediately to the right of the driveway for a house. It is right at the street and appears to be an overgrown thicket.
This appears to be a family cemetery. There is a Radford Road north of Papillion Way off of Thomasville Road (US 319). I believe the surrounding land may have been the Radford farm or maybe a plantation. This small cemetery is surrounded by The Ravines development, and it is practically in one house's front yard.
There are only three marked graves, but there are two other distinct
graves without markers but having domed concrete grave covers, and
there appears to be another grave, however, that grave has no cover,
only what appears to be the remains of a cover - large chunks of
brick and concrete.
The cemetery is in very poor condition with only one small section of fence still standing. All four fence corner posts remain in place. There is heavy growth, thorned vines and poison ivy.
