E.R. Conner, III June 22, 1980 Cemetery is enclosed by 30'x40' barbed wire fence, partially fallen. Lot is on hillside, with all sides but north raised or terraced above level of land. Because of remoteness, cemetery has not been maintained. Headstone 3 leans forward; headstone 5 leans backward; and headstone 6 leans forward on an iron rod.

George and Julia Trone Weedon were the parents of Ann Eliza Trone Weedon, who married John Moses Payne. Julia Caroline Payne was the daughter of john and Ann Payne, and William Payne was a brother of John.

Cemetery is in good condition, probably owing to itsremoteness, with main damage being undermining of markers by burrowing animals. No additional graves are known to be here. Headstone 3 is lettered in script, an uncommon adornment.

David Cuff Nov. 2015 Cemetery is in fair condition. Some of the stones could be reset and uprighted. This cemetery is one of the most remote ones in the county, no roads next to it and there is no trial leading to the cemetery.
