This Cemetery has a wall built around it made of concrete about 3 feet tall. Believed to have about 15 or 16 graves not many stones remain and it is in very bad condition with a tree that has fell right in the middle of the cemetery.
The cemetery land I'm told was given by the Byard family unsure if it was Martin who is laid to rest here.
