From Hanover PA, east on Rte. 116 to Jacobs Mill Rd. Left on Jacobs Mill Rd. 0.2 mi. to Trolley Rd. Left on Trolley Rd. 0.2 mi. Cemetery is on the left about 70 yds. from the road along the tree line. It is surrounded by an iron fence.
A private family cemetery in fair condition but some stones are unreadable. It dates back to the early 1800s with no burials since 1861 with a headstone.
I walked and read all existing and legible tombstones in 1999.
