Cemetary is located off old carriage road recently named Lovers Lane, on the road between the village to Wattson Pond Rd. It is one quarter mile in on the right in the woods. Hard to see because of it's unkept state.
Small round, stonewalled, with two iron chains one above the other across the entrance. The whole thing, rocks, chains, can be easily stepped over. It sets In a direct line in back of some ones home , but ownership unclear. Please ask permission before seeking, easy to get lost.
I have recorded all visible markers. There is also one spot outside of the ring that looks to be a burial of some type, but is unmarked, just some rocks placed as if over a grave.
The unkept state of this cemetery leads me to believe that no one has been there for many years.- Cathleen Crowley
