On Highway 33, or Frankford-Stirling Rd, just off the boundary of Oak Hills Golf Club is this little Cemetary. Beside the cemetary is the River Valley Church, still used.
The large marker in the cemetary has the names of all those buried in the cemetary. If you know the area, a lot of the family names are still in the area.
Just to the north of the cemetary is what's left of the the mill. Just through the trees you can see what's left of the river that ran the mill.
Somewhere in the cemetary someone is buried the word "Murdered" on the tombstone. I tried to find it but the graves are all faded and hard to read. There is a family plot fenced off with a few graves in it.
In the summer of 2011 someone ran off the road and took out a few grave stones, that's why some are slanted in the pics.

if the picture of the stone looks odd, its because i was there the weekend after a car hit it, so it was on an angle. I stood on an angle to get a straight shot. Don't know if they took the stone out to repair it, havent been that way since october

Interesting, I have never seen a stone such as the large one with all the names of those resting here.
