Located in Borderland State Park, south of (behind) the mansion a few hundred yards or so, just inside the tree line in line at approximately the mid-point of the mansion. Note there are stone walls on three sides of this cemetery, two approximately 70 ft long (east-west) and one on the east side of the burial grounds, approximately 35 ft wide (north-south).

There are three stones in this burial ground, two larger stones on the west side of the grounds and one smaller stone just east of these stones.


The largest headstone is located in the NW (relative to the other stones) and has a U.S. American Veteran's Flag in place. The inscription is on the west side of the headstone as shown below…
