Not fenced, but grove of trees indicates a large family plot. May

George K. Canterbury had a farm west of this cem. During Civil War,
Union soldiers wounded him, but he escaped and hid in a haystack at
this cem. His mother surreptitiously brought him food, until she
persuaded him to give himself up because of the infection of his
wound. He was taken 1st to Wellsville, later sent to a prison camp.
