Directions--Located in back of Walter Sinnegar farm. Follow Ness Road seven tenths
of a mile, the road ends in a field. About a tenth of a mile up in the field is the
cemetery. Road used to go on up the hill farther and border on the cemetery. A stone
wall surrounding is partly down. Large pine tree in cemetery and many small trees. Overgrown with berry bushes and brush. Many stones are down, many field stone markers. Many stones probably buried as old records in Huntington Library show markers which could not be found in 1976, The stones face up the hill.
