There are a total of at least 87 fieldstones, none of which are inscribed. This is a combination of both headstones and footstones, but it is difficult to distinguish some of them apart by the way they are laid out. Many of these are infants and children, judging by the space in between the head and foot stones. Judging by the sunken depressions in the ground, I believe that there are at least 58 graves in this plot. One of the unmarked fieldstones has a Civil War flag holder on the grave. If this is a Civil War Veteran, it would make a total of three such veterans in this plot. Attempts were made to obtain obituaries for the above two without success. This cemetery was part of the Brown Farm which was abandoned in the 1940's and deeded to the State to make up part of the present Laurel Ridge State Park.
