The cemetery is laid out facing east with the gate on the east side. For the lates 2014 survey, the cemetery was divided into in XY grid with four divisions, A1 (100 X 100 ft), A2 (50 X 100 ft, B1 (100 X 50 ft) and B2 (50 X 50 ft). Most of the burials are in Division A1, but all grave locations are identified by Division and XY location. There is one fenced plot with four gaves, only the grave of Eliza Grand has a full headstone with name and date, and this fenced area has been arbitrarily named the Grand plot.

The cemetery was inventoried on December 4, 1998 by Jan C. Plemmons and Jan Warren, following an earlier survey by Yuvonne Phillips Johnson in 1986 which identified two other graves not now identifiiable. Lori Bragg also did a survey.

The latest photographic survey was completed in July 2014 by Danny Mallard.
