The Hooker Cemetery is another family cemetery. It is overgrown with brambles and brush and the ground is covered with myrtle. While beautiful, this ground cover grows over fallen stones and makes it easy to overlook some. Mr. Gordon Hooker has also made a list of the stones in this cemetery. The two lists together helped discover any ommissions. Several people have said that a maid of Abraham Lincoln's was buried here. The only marker that could be hers is that of Issabella Sketo. Also of interest is the marker of Susanna Woolaston who died at age 98 in 1850. The markers are dated from 1841 to 1905.
