Located on the McCrae farm (abandoned) on the Town Line Road just opposite Pool 
Creek (Brook?) Road. Site is in a place very difficult to reach---is behind the 
house about 200 ft or so, but there is a swampy spot (more like a pond---the 
beavers have been working!) so that a detour must be made.  Went up the road 
about 1/2 mile: took the old logging road about 30 ft, turned left onto a smaller 
trail, went down an overgrown gully, climbed over a fence, tramped through some 
more woods, and finally came out onto what is called "the big flat" ( a one-time 
hay field).  The cemetery is located in the right hand corner of this flat area 
( as you look at the house from Town Line Road.  It is marked (sort of) by the 
presence of three large pine trees and 3 big cherry trees.  It is completely 
overgrown with brush, weeds etc; had to really hunt for the grave markers---three 
of which are down and partially buried in decaying leaves, grasses etc. and several 
others are tilted rather precariously.  

Condition: Extremely bad.
