Many tombstones, some of the oldest, gone. Mr. Robert Richardson, local historian of Warren Township, worked very hard in the 1970ís to see that this cemetery was recognized by the State and Federal government as a Prehistoric Mound. Tests were conducted and proof was provided, from the mound and some of the remains and artifacts found inside of the mound that showed proof that there was inhabitants living in the area as well as proof of a prehistoric burial ground at this location. When the early pioneers began to settle the river banks, they continued to use the Mound as a pioneer cemetery, burying some of the earliest pioneers to settle that area and included the Tilton and Hodgen families.
