From DAR records, 1940's...."The area occupied by this little burial plot was a part of William McDonald's farm. The earliest marked stone is that of James Melton who died in 1829. His wife was Mary Kendall. They were married in Harrison County and settled in Orange County in 1819. There are several unmarked graves. This is in the vicinity of Williamsburg, a vanished village, laid out by William McDonald on Patoka in 1842."

In addition to the 13 burials shown below, there are 40 others whose identities are unknown and identified with a ground level stone marked with a plot number only. Many are now covered with grass and  not apparent without exploration. Where no photo is shown, DAR records and reinterrment records have been used for reference.
