This is a small cemetery located in the Millbrook Valley off the Pepacton Reservoir road. Make a left to Arena. Access is from the Millbrook road at the first State Trail sign on your right above the old beaver pond above The Tuscarora Club. Drive out in the woods a few 100 feet and it is off to the right. --Roger D. Davis
