From the Oxford Valley exit of Route 1, go south on Oxford Valley Road. Cross over Business Route 1 and take first left, which is a continuation of Oxford Valley Road. The cemetery is on the right side of the road in a residential area, surrounded by a stone wall approximately 0.2 miles from the turn.
A plaque reads: "Established 1704 by deed '5 perches square' on this land by first purchasers John Rowland and Priscilla Sheppard his wife. Passengers with William Penn on the ship 'Welcome' 1682."
Burials no longer occur on the site. Fifteen stones are on the grounds, however, unmarked depressions at the site indicate more burials (at least 25 total). All but three of the remaining stones are totally illegible.
I recorded this burial site on Jan 01, 2004, using my camera.South, Merrith P., d. 07 Feb 1897, Aged 53 years, "Co B 104 PA Vol." GAR flagstand
