The first burying ground was somewhere in the present area of Mrs. W. P. Biggs home. Its existance had been forgotten for many years until Dr. John M. Farrington, who had heard of it from Col. Camp, investigated in September 1876. He wrote, "Time and neglect have allowed the stones to fall over and they were densely covered with weeds and grass. Three only were standing." Their inscriptions were as follows:
