OLD KNICKERBOCKER FARM CEMETERY

Summit Twp.
GPS Coordinates; 4142'56.75"N, 7757'42.66"W
Going south from Ayers Hill Cemetery, stay on First Fork Road for a half mile. Cemetery is on the right, back from the road. Look for two old spruce trees and a pond. From the road between the spruce trees, you can see the cemetery back about 500 feet and on the right. The cemetery is on private property. Property owners probably live in the house beyond the pond.
