The cemetery was destroyed after 1950 by placement of a sawmill on the site. There is no evidence of any graves at this time.

Of note is that there are two similar graves for Sanders Culver and Ann Culver in Knowles Chapel Cemetery. If these are the same people, the graves may have been moved from this site.
