Originally located on the Rumsey farm, about two miles northeast
of Flat Rock.
It now is alongside the highway in a more residential
area as use of the land has changed. I am not sure who owns and
maintains it at this time.
These are all known burials. Many stones are severely, worn,
missing or damaged. Information from stones and previous transcriptions,
complete up to May 10, 2008.
