The Truslow Cemetery formerly adjacent to Embrey Mill Road, is an example of a small rural family cemetery. Studies of the cemetery indicated that four people were buried here within the 33-foot square enclosed by a post and wire fence.
The only marked grave is that of Benjamin Truslow, born August 18, 1871 and died June 11, 1901 at the age of 29 of peritonitis. The name and dates were hand-inscribed in the sandstone. The smaller, similarly shaped marker to the southeast is thought to be the grave's accompanying footstone.
