In Naylor, from the intersection of Croom Road or Highway 382 and Candy Hill Road, go south on Highway 382 for 1 mile. There on the east side of the road you will signs for a housing development. Turn and park there on the rocky part of the road. From there, you walk up a hill about .25 miles south/southeast, until you get to a 200 year old house which is partly torn down. Go behind the house and the cemetery is back there. It has an old iron fence around the cemetery.
The Skinner Family owned the area and their house was called Mansfield. The cemetery was in use from 1840-1905. Today, the whole property is abandoned and neglected. The Ryan Housing Corporation owns part of the land and they are going to build houses on the land.
This is a sad situation. The cemetery is in bad condition with the iron fence broken and there is a lot of overgrowth. These are also 2 broken headstones. I spoke with some of the locals in this area about the situation. They said that there is no immediate members of the Skinner Family left in the area. The cemetery also contains for the four Skinner daughters in unmarked graves.
I visited this burial site on Nov 27, 2004. I compared my findings with "Stones and Bones" published in 1984.- Anne Braun
