Cemetery is located just off the street on the right hand side just
after the sidestreet to the left. The cemetery is immediately to the right
of the driveway for a house. It is right at the street and appears to
be an overgrown thicket.
This appears to be a family cemetery. There is a Radford Road north
of Papillion Way off of Thomasville Road (US 319). I believe the surrounding
land may have been the Radford farm or maybe a plantation. This small
cemetery is surrounded by The Ravines development, and it is practically
in one house's front yard.
There are only three marked graves, but there are two other distinct graves
without markers but having domed concrete grave covers, and there appears
to be another grave, however, that grave has no cover, only what appears
to be the remains of a cover - large chunks of brick and concrete.
The cemetery is in very poor condition with only one small section of
fence still standing. All four fence corner posts remain in place. There
is heavy growth, thorned vines and poison ivy.
