It is no longer an active cemetery, but is well cared for. There are many Gardners in this old cemetery. In my photo collection, I found two veterans there, Phillip and Seth Gardner. Since the Civil War took place from 1861-1865, it would appear that Phillip died in the war since the date of his death is Dec. 7, 1863. Also, he wasn't young at 52 years of age to be at war. Seth was 44 when he signed up. I found the info on Ancestry.com. and it stated he was a farmer.
