This graveyard is located south of Route 16, east of Greencastle. It is found within a clump of trees southwest of the intersection of Long Lane with Route 16.
The plot was once enclosed by a barbed wire fence on wooden posts. Since the 1970s this fence has almost completely disappeared. There are two legible markers and at least four graves marked with fieldstones.
According to tradition, Samuel Dixon, the first European to be buried in Franklin County, is buried here. Another tradition mentions that many African-Americans are supposedly buried here.
