DIRECTIONS: "This cemetery is located between the Johnson Farm Road and Route 74. At the Johnson Farm, follow the dirt road heading south the the end of hte old apple orcahrd. When you get to the end of the orchard turn rigth (west) and follow the hedge road toward the mountain. When you get to the end of the hedge road turn left (south). The cemetery is about one hundred yards from hedge row. The cemetery is on the right side about 75-80 yards into the mountain. There is a yellow ribbon tied on the entrance to the woods. Cross a fence and the cemetery is located a little to your right. You wil see an old snow fence that is there. Just in back of the cemetery is a large smooth ledge. There are also corner markers standing which appears that it could have had chains or fence attached to the pillars."
