            before 1954 when the current owner purchased the property. The previous owners names 



            Hughes purchased the land in 1905. The Knight graves were probably moved shortly  



            after this date. The present owner discovered four gravestones on the ground near 



            the barn and mortared into the chimney. The exact location of the cemetery is not 



            known, but the current owner, Simon V. DerMksian, built a stone wall in 1997 and reset 



            the four remaining stones in an appropriate area behind his orchard.
