Comments:  There is a big orchard in back of this cemetery, some of the cemetery is well taken care of but the back and older part is high with weeds and since this cemetery is on a side hill it was hard copying. The cemetery was surrounded by a fence at one time. There are many unmarked graves; broken stones; field stones; no identification.

The Maynard cemetery was given by John Maynard to the community. The first to be buried there was John Maynard’s grandson, Adolph Winkler in 1857, the next was Jimmy Maynard, son of John Maynard. John Maynard's family and some of the other people buried in this cemetery were written up in The History of Elk Run. The sketches were furnished by members of the families.
