Location: The cemetery is located off of Smith Hill Road near the intersection of Smith Hill Road and McClintick Road in Jay Township, Elk County, Pennsylvania. To access the cemetery, you will travel by foot alongside of a creek on an old dirt and gravel road. The cemetery is located in a wooded area that is surrounded by trees
Ownership: This may or may not be private property. The present ownership of the cemetery is currently unknown.
Boundaries: There is no wall, fence, gate or similar enclosure surrounding the headstones other than trees, bushes, brush, etc.
