This cemetery may be the ancestral family cemetery of Pelham Skrine, per a nearby land owner. However, Pelham Skrine is buried in Springfield Church Cemetery #1.

The property is currently owned by Plum Creek, and we would like to thank them for preserving the cemetery and making us aware of it.

The cemetery covers a large area on a rise, probably 200' by 200'. Few graves are visible but there is the possibility that many graves are no longer visible.

There are remains of an old homestead south of the cemetery on private land, and it may be that the homestead was associated with this cemetery at one time.
