Survey and Photos by
Mary Love Berryman

In 1980 and for many years after that this cemetery was in very bad shape. In about 1994 a group of Berryman descendants cleaned the cemetery up. They realized that the tombstone for Mrs. Sarah's buggy mule was missing. A collection was taken up to replace the stone - not as it was but with the same wording. The owner of the property has been very helpful in keeping the cemetery clean. It is a very pleasant spot now - just outside of Royston. ~ MLB
