Notes: The Miller Family Cemetery was probably constructed in the 1830's by William Miller. The 33 x 78 foot plot is surrounded by a 6-foot high, 1-foot thick brick wall, with a gateway on the west side. The workmanship of the masons is obvious, since the wall remains in reasonably good repair, after over 170 years. Grave robbers plundered & desecrated the graves, crypts & tombstones in the early 1900's, leaving no monuments intact. (Lary Walker, 8 Nov 2006)
