Given to Joyce M. Tice 


Located on the north side of Scouten Road in the western portion of Sullivan Township near the Sullivan-Richmond Township line. See 1875 atlas of Sullivan where George Seelye resided and the cemetery would be across the road from the residence.
Markers copied October 1983 by J. Kelsey Jones. Seely and Seelye appear on markers and are given below as they appear.
Note from JMT. The markers are still intact at the present (1999/2000) but the area is overgrown and not protected in any way. I would say that this burial ground is threatened.
