Actually that is a town plot. It included enough land for a saddle shop. It
would probably be a few graves in size. I think it would be very easy to
plot out a cemetery, but harder to plot out individual graves. I am not
sure that early cemeteries had plots like modern ones did. So it would be
hard to find the exact location of each plot. Depends on what you really
wanted to do. If you wanted to plot the cemetery in relation to the rest of
the land around it, in order to find the graves, it would be very easy to
do, since most deeds set aside the cemetery.

I recall you asking about this small land transaction. Perhaps the
original intention was as a grave site rather than as a small store or
house. Or did you ever discover what it was?
