From Rte 36 in Looneyville, turn left onto Vineyard Ridge and follow
for about 4.6 miles. The cemetery is on the west or right side of
the road a short distance off the road.
This cemetery was established in the early 1900s judging from
the existing stones. After walking this cemetery I compared my
work with the WPA info 7/22/1938. There were only 2 marked graves
with at least 11 or more unmarked graves.
I walked and read this cemetery in Apr 15, 2008, this
includes all existing and legible headstone and marker readings.
