From Rte 36 in Looneyville, turn left onto Vineyard Ridge and follow for about 4.6 miles. The cemetery is on the west or right side of the road a short distance off the road.
This cemetery was established in the early 1900s judging from the existing stones. After walking this cemetery I compared my work with the WPA info 7/22/1938. There were only 2 marked graves with at least 11 or more unmarked graves.
I walked and read this cemetery in Apr 15, 2008, this includes all existing and legible headstone and marker readings.- Reggie Watson
