Burials:

I visited the cemetery on December 31, 2007 and found only the following remaining:
3 blank tombstones
5 fieldstones

The following list was provided to Mary L. Sabetti and Doris Qwen July 15, 1985 by Robert Taylor at that time owner of the property and a descendent of those buried in this cemetery. Mr. Taylor stated that there were no tombstones, just field stones. (Source: Xerox copy of list of names on file at the Ridgeway Library, Bullitt County Kentucky)
