In Barnesville, from the intersection of Barnesville Road and Highway 109, go north on Highway 109 for 2 miles until you reach Comus Road, turn on Comus Road and go east until you see the first driveway going south turn there and go south until you reach the house. The cemetery is east of the house about .25 miles. The cemetery has a barb wire fence around it.
A small family cemetery dating back to the 1830's. The property once belong to David Hershey and the cemetery was located on the family farm. The last burial took place in 1901. The cemetery is neglected. They took down the old iron fence and replaced with a barb wire fence. There is overgrowth and holes where ground hogs and moles live. It is a sad site.
I visited and walked this cemetery Mar 18, 2004.
