Daniels Farm Burial Ground was established in 1833. You have to cross a rather large lawn to approach the cemetery which is enclosed by stone walls. There is also a closed wrought iron gate. I'm guessing it was once a family burial lot; there are quite a few stones for members of the Bennett, Hurd, and Lewis families. The stones date from the 1830s to 1899.

Photos were taken 10 November 2008 and 19 July 2010.
