This cemetery was read & photographed during the second week of October, 2007. Situated in a pasture, you can see the cemetery from the Winchester-Glasgow road. Our thanks to the property owner who gave us permission to visit the cemetery and directed us to the easiest way to reach it. The cemetery is kept mowed and most of the stones are still standing. There is a good deal of open space in the center of the cemetery which might contain more burials which didn't have stones. We also located a number of foot stones which didn't have markers to go along with them. If a name appears in red, click on the name to bring up a picture of that individual's cemetery marker.

We located two markers for a James H. Anderson - in different parts of the cemetery, one was almost illegible and we were able to make out most of the inscription on the second one. It wasn't clear whether these two stones represent two different individuals or whether there are two markers for the same man with different dates.
