I've been told that old "Joshua Kemp" was father to this family.
That he had about (3) wifes, and somewhere around 22 children.
That's a large family.   In the corner of this cemetery you can still            
find Joshua's old headstone. It was the handmade original .

This cemetery was copied and recorded by, Beverly M. Douds
and Henrietta Branch on 22 Jan 1998.
