 Phifer Cemetery

Phifer Cemetery was located 3/4 mile south of Gilgal Baptist Church at T22S R9W S16 (estimated) off of Bear Creek Road.  Sources say this cemetery was destroyed by a landowner clearing an area for a house.  This cemetery held many graves including Civil War veterans who are all now lost.  In Beasey Hendrix Jr.'s book he gives a listing which we will use below.
