Surveyed by Donna Skipper Pultz
Directions and notes from the contributor: Take Town Creek NE to White Oak Road. Take the right fork on White Oak Road to Bear Trap Road. The cemetery is on private property on the right side of the road in a wooded area between mailboxes 986 and 989. Many of the tombstones were laying on the ground. We propped some back up where it was possible. The woods are taking over the graves.
