Findagrave.com has this cemetery well depicted and also much family history and old family photos. It is odd I only found one inscribed stone and they show one other one that I missed. However it is clear there are many fieldstones marking graves of the other folks listed above who have no inscribed marker. I suspect someone knows of the existence of all the above folks and knows they disappeared from the picture after burial behind the old home place so correctly concluded they are here in unmarked graves.

The old Sullivan home is in front of the cemetery down next to the road but in a near collapsed state. See findagrave for family photos of this large family. Upon my visit the owners or renters of the home were unhappy about what might be done to the cemetery to infringe upon their right to privacy. So respect that as best as you can if you go here.

Most of that work is signed by someone as "The Mikado, et al". He has listed most of the info on findagrave.com. Please go there if you are interested in this cemetery for more information.
