visible, however the grave of Tobie Hayes is the only one that has a
headstone. The cemetery is located at the edge of the woods, but you
can see it from the road, in Lower Caney Valley. The best opportunity
to view the area is in the fall of the year when all the leaves and
vines are not covering up the area.

grandson of Winnie Hayes. He is the great grandson of Greenberry Hayes
