Cole Cemetery: Notes

Cole cemetery This is the family burial ground of Matthew Cole. It is on private property and unmain­tained. It is in a clump of trees in the middle of a large open field and clearly visible from the road, though perhaps 100 yards east of it.

Like many small family plots, this one was called on earlier lists after the name of the people who owned the farm. It has been referred to as the Arnold, Hugh Porter and Stewart farm cemetery, depending on when the list was made.
