This cemetery is on the farm of Peter Daniel (-1864) and Elizabeth Parker, who left it to son Pryor Daniel (1817-1875). Worn headstones for Pryor and his wife, Mary Susan Elmore, remain. Also thought to be born here are Pryor's sister Martha Daniel (c1826-1 Nov 1854) who married Pvt. Samuel Harrison Gunn and brothers Pvt. Albert Daniel and Pvt. Sydnor Daniel and his wife, Elizabeth Jane Cordle. If indeed Martha, who died in 1854 is here, then likely too is her father Peter Daniel in one of the unmarked graves, CWS f BCV, pp. 140-41, 148, 225.
