As always, thanks Dave for the great research work!
While 12 people are listed as being buried in this cemetery, there are divots in the ground that suggest others as well. Often, people were buried in Pine Boxes. Made of simple wood, it didn't take long for them to rot away in the ground. When this happens, the ground sinks into the now empty space, creating a sort of sink hole at the grave. It may also be that family members came and dug up their loved ones, moving them to another cemetery. There is a large sunken in area pictured above that might suggest several graves were moved, though I can't say for sure that that is the case. If you have any history on this little cemetery, please let me know.
