Notes: All headstones in this plot were removed from the ground. None are broken, it is clear they were placed up against trees. All footstones are clearly in the original place. This cemetery is off Brearley Hill Road, down the path of abandoned road. At the top of the trail and a very short distance away is the burial ground of the Brearley family. A short distance down the hill on this old road, and just before going up another hill, there is a stream, about 50 feet or so before the stream is a path made of stone, going up the side hill on the right, the family burial ground of this Carl family is there about 50 feet from the old road. The house foundation can also be found about 100 feet from the burial plot going back toward Brearley Hill. This house was located on a 1853 map where the foundation is, but not showing on the 1866 map. One would believe that maybe the house burnt sometime between 1853-1866, or was taken down. The Brearley's lived next door. (per these maps)

Notes: Wm. Carl - (Stone is weathered) This headstone is the last one in the row. Footstone W. C. still in the ground. Headstone leaning up against a tree, footstone on one side of tree, headstone on the other side. Tree appears to be growing on his grave. Notes: 1850 Caroline Census records: Carle, William age 65 born NJ; Abagail age 60 born MA; Living in same household was, Jackson, Mary A., age 10, Allen, Charles age 15; (Abagail Carle, must be the second wife to William Carl).

Notes: William E. Carl - First headstone in burial plot - leaning up against a tree - with the headstone of Charlotte H. Carl wife of Chancy Paine's headstone next to his. Footstone W. E. C., in ground.

Notes: Charlotte H. Carl Paine - Her headstone is the 2nd one as you enter the family burial plot, and headstone is leaning up against a tree next to William E. Carl's headstone.
