COMPLETED TRANSCRIPTION

Driving directions to this cemetery From Highway 16 turn off on Newton County Rd 316, located between Nail and Deer, there is a sign at the highway that says Limestone. Follow this about 5 miles or so passing two not labeled cemeteries (which are Bethel Clayborn on the left, and Curtis on the right) Odgen is located right on the county road and you can't miss it located on the left hand side of the road. The county road is a dirt/gravel road and so going around and down the mountain is kind of ruff.....

We are trying to collect obits for as many people as we can, so if anyone sees their families here we would like to hear from you. Especially if you have anything to add to this informaiton. Or if you see we have it noted that we have an obit that you would like for us to share also we have headstone pictures of all the stones in this cemetery, just e-mail us and we'll be happy to do what we can to share with you.

There were stones here that were hard to read, and stones that had been broken, but we've tryed our best to transcribe as best as we could. Anything below the transcription in ( ) is stuff we know about the person mentioned and if it is in ( ) that stuff isn't on the stone. So use only as a guideline in your own research unless a family contact is beside it. As we have no way of making sure the data is 100% correct.

I'm making an alphabetical list at first of everyone there and under this list is the actual sayings & dates from the stones. The stones below this listing are as they were in the cemetery. So you can see who is buried beside whom. But if the name is listed in the alphabetical listing then they will be in the transcription just look for them. I hope in doing this it will answer the questions of relatatives being buried beside relatives etc. As I have no way of knowing who is related to each other. Enjoy,.....

If anyone has any obits or actual people pictures you would like to share with us. Or if you know anything about any of these people feel free to e-mail us at clinefam@ritternet.com We are trying to make these people as "real" as possible so even though they lived 100 or more years ago they truely will be "gone but not forgotten".

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want he maketh me to lie down in green pastures He leadeth me beside the still waters He restoreth my soul He leadeth me in the paths of rightwousness for His name's sake, yes though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me thou preparest a table before me in th presence of mine enemies thou anointest my headwith oil my cup runneth over surely goodness and mercy shall follow me fr the days of my life and i will live in the house of the Lord forever
