Located in Henry County on the old Thomas V. Bruce property. This old Family cemetery is located on the Drennon Springs Road, a couple of miles northeast of New Castle.  This property is now owned by the Steele Family.  The cemetery is located within sight of the large, red brick house in which Steele family resides, within a clump of trees.  There are no tombstones remaining.  The many creekstones scattered about the area are, I believe, the remains of the stone wall that once surrounded the burial sight... Charles O. Bruce
