The cemetery is located near the intersection of Routes 36 and 899. It is located on a hill behind the Cook Forest Trading Post.
Please note that the cemetery is on private property - currently there is no access permitted to the cemetery.
This cemetery is in poor condition. The cemetery has a large number of groundhog holes. Several of the graves are sunken in and there is a number of unmarked graves or graves with just a fieldstone for a marker. There was a pile of stones in Row 8 that appear to be grave markers. One was a tombstone that was broken in pieces and not all of them were in the pile so I could not make out who it was for.
I reviewed a transcription that was published by Patricia Steele in Tombstone Hoppin Vol 1 and there are two stones included in that transcription (approx 1976) that no longer exist. They are for James Mays d. 8/11/1842 and the other was for Albert Butterfield d. 10/9/1832 (there is a footstone for this grave). The pile of stones is in the place where Patricia Steele indicates that James Mays is buried.
It is possible that there are some stones that have fallen over and the grass has covered over. In row 8 the first grave, there appears to be a stone under the grass, but I did not wish to disturb it. Transcribed by Nathan Zipfel.
