Low steel posts surround this cemetery with a chain strung between them.  It takes up ¼ of the front yard and is right beside the Caldwell Cemetery.
The present resident states that many years ago there was a large farmhouse, behind the current house, in which a widowed lady lived.  Her relatives were the ones buried in this little cemetery. The farmhouse burned and the children of the widow built her a small 4-room home in front of the site of the old home.  That is why the cemetery is now in the front yard.  The present owner didnít know the surname of the widow but it might be one of those listed below. The present owner has enlarged and remodeled this home.
In the days of the farmhouse, there were thought to be no other homes built in this block of 4Ave, Monroe, Lawrence and Spring Streets.  Now every lot seems to have a house.
