This is the cemetery used by the Bellona settlers before the present cemetery was established after about 1870. It appears that most of the stones were moved to the new cemetery, but these few were left behind, perhaps because they had no family left here to care for their graves.
The cemetery is abandoned and unmaintained. Some of the stones are broken, some fallen. Most are intact and can be read. It is sometimes called the North Hill Cemetery because of its location.
