This small cemetery is located across the driveway from Freeman Patterson's house on Shamper's Bluff. There are three head-stones and one foot-stone, and a field-stone that could possibly be a marker. All headstones are flat-lying; two of them have inscriptions that are quite legible. The foot-stone is slightly slanted. There may be unmarked graves here as well.

Possibly a marker; reason for this thought - its shape and position.
