Access; Requires Permission

[Cemetery is a small (four to six) burials of Copp family members. Those buried here are members of the Copp family for whom the small valley is named [Copp Hollow]. Older local residents remember four to six stones but I could only observe one which was standing and had the following information on it:

               M. Lee Copp


I am not absolutely sure of the date. It was raining and I didn’t have any gear with me to aid in the reading. The other stones are thought to be under the leaves on the site and further investigation may locate them.]
