The Buzzard Roost and Tracy Cemeteries were moved in 1943 to make room for the Norfork Lake and combined to make one. This cemetery was lost to the trees and bushes for years and very hard to find.  In   2002  someone did some cleaning and burning. All markers and pieces of markers found lying around were laid against the fence. One wooden marker was standing and someone had placed a stone for Dora Baker in the last few years. These names were taken from the Corps of Engineer’s list, there were no dates. There were 33 graves moved that were marked unknown on this list. Some of the comments are mine and some are from the list. The numbers on the right are the numbers were the grave was placed.
