Determined there could be up to 52 internments. Only one female interment was found. No headstones/markers remain (if there were any).  In 2006, the cemetery for the most part is in a circular driveway enclosure, E & S of the foundation of the Bulfind Hotel. A few rock enclosures are still visible. Cattle use this area as bedding & have destroyed almost all evidence. A few interments were detected north of the north side of the circular driveway.
