Astin Family Cemetery
The Astin/Dean Family Cemetery is located on Jones Ferry Rd, approximately 0.5 mile south of Barns Rd on the west side of the road. The cemetery is on top of the small hill to the south.
There are six graves on the site: two box slab tombs and four head & foot stones inside of a brick rectangular border. There is also a small circular border of rocks near the box tombs, but no other evidence of rock markers.
The original research on this cemetery was done in 2009. At that time we named it the Astin Family Cemetery as no dates were found on the box tombs for the Dean Family.
The cemetery is being reviewed again in April 2018. Further research has found the dates for the two Dean Family graves predate those of the Astins, (Edward Dean 1795-1854 and Mary Dena 1797-1854). More information will be provided when the report is updated.
The property owner was aware of the cemetery and said that before he had the land, it was referred to as the Old Astin place, but he did not know the history of the cemetery.
