The location was shown on a plat of Mr. Leonard Queen's property. The only evidence of graves were sunken areas. Other areas on the property indicate more graves. When a bank of the road along the side of a walled area was cut down, other graves were unearthed. Evidence of a blacksmith shop was found when the house was built on adjoining property.
Cemetery has been rebuilt and no longer appears as how it was found. The entire area is 20 by 30 feet is covered with small stones and is surrounded by a 2 foot wall made of Tennessee field stone. A small statue of Jesus is at one end and steps leading up into the area are on the opposite end.
