From the junction of highways 7 and 27 in Dover, go north on highway 7 for 14.3 miles. There will be a utility pole on your right just past a woods road driveway. There is what appears to be, a rock crypt directly behind this utility pole on the edge of this bench.
The Pope County Highway Map shows a cemetery in this vicinity. The road plans for the relocation of highway 7 does not show any grave. Ethel Standridge Tilley says there is a grave in this location, but she did not know who was buried there.
The Pope County Historical Association Quarterly for September 1994 lists
a William Bryan, who was a Revolutionary War Veteran, that is buried somewhere
north of Dover near highway 7. One story says his grave had to be
moved because of the construction and/or relocation of the highway.
This crypt does not appear to have been moved, but some of the rocks have
been removed from it.
