The first burial in Mount Vernon Cemetery was in 1860. It is now abandoned and in poor condition with only two tombstones and a wooden cross in evidence. Some attempt has been made to keep what remains in good repair as the remaining gravestones have been repaired and there is a wooden fence around the area. Unfortuneatly, at least one stone looks as if it was used for target practice.
