Thank you for making this posting. We were unable to find the cemetery. We are interested in the Hilligoss Graves there. Was this a church cemetery or for the Ormes family grave site or on Mr. Henry Ormes property? Do you know any of the history of the cemetery. By your readings which grave that was marked was the oldest? We have been tracing a great great aunt Jane Steel married to David Hilligoss who was to have been buried in the Ormes Cemetery. David and Jane's children that we know of are: Margaret Elizabeth m Elias J. Heaton, Ira C m Elizabeth English and Mary Duke, Martin M. J., Thomas Wallace m Amanda Jones, Clarinda m James Heaton, Marcellus L. We do not know if any of these graves or their children are there also. Thank you for your help if you still have these lists and have the time to send them. Susan Steele Victor
