    Higlighted tracts include land granted to Ancel Melton in 1797 and land he purchased from Nathan Smith in 1786. The property was originally granted to Jesse Ritter in 1773. Ancel Melton's son James Melton is buried here. It is likely that a number of Melton family graves once existed here but currently James is the only one remaining.
