In the 1960's the DAR noted that the Catherine Rodes broken stone and another old stone with no inscription may be the stones of Philip Rodes and wife Catherine. Family records say they were buried in this graveyard. Jacob Rhodes was a son of Philip Rodes or Rhodes. The cemetery is located behind the house and in a field. It is about a 1/8 mile walk to the cemetery. It has an iron fence around it, under cedar trees, and not well maintained.
