Galley Rock Cemetery

Galley (Galla) Rock Cemetery

The cemetery was bound by Mason Street on the north and Walnut Street on the east. It was first used before 1840. possibly as early as the 1820's with the Cherokee. JOSIAH FAIRHURST MAY 3, 1812, FEB. 1 1843 is the earliest marked grave. 1923 was the last time the cemetery was used. The markers are getting worn and hard to read. We had Medal markers made all except several which had new markers. The last survey of the cemetery was done in June of 2003, by Earlene Peak, James David Peak and John Stroud.
