This cemetery was located East of Richvalley and just East of the entrance to Richvalley cemetery. For many years the small family plot had not been used and stones had been removed for building purposes. About the year 1985, the cemetery was plowed over and is now a cornfield. One major stone was recovered by Ben Smith who lives across the road. Occasionally small pieces of gravestone appear on the surface. The following has been compiled from Family records and newspaper accounts.
