 "I drove down Clay Ridge Road to the location given for the Daniel's Family and Baker farm cemeteries.  Location given on the web site is the SE corner of Clayridge and Griffin Ford Roads.  A man named Joe Phefferman lives at that location.  I asked about the cemetery and he directed me to the farm to the SW of his.  I believe this was once a Baker farm but is no longer in that family.  The cemetery is located on a hill to the east of Griffin Ford Rd almost directly behind the home of Gail Shaffer.  I was given permission to cross his place and given better directions to the grave site.  The cemetery is in a pasture but in a grove of Honey Locust trees.  The immediate area of the cemetery has grown over with very tall weeds.  My wife and I searched the area for about an hour.  We found many plain field stones set on end.  I would guess that there are at least 30 graves in the cemetery.  I searched for a bit longer and was finally able to find one of the inscribed headstones.  It was lying face up on the ground.  The stone belongs to Alexander Daniel and he is one of the persons listed.  I got a few digital pictures of the stone."

"Death dealt the blow his spirit rose
To happiness on high
Tread softly for here in sweet repose
His wasting relics lie."


Alexander G Daniel Headstone

"Beneath this stone in sweet repose
Is laid a mother's only joy
Although the casket moulders here
Its gems are sparkling
Now in heaven."
