Fulbright Cemetry in Rogers Cove, Lake Junaluska
Unnamed Cemetery on the Jonathan Creek side of Utah Mountain in Haywood County that few people know about, it is a little cemetery that has no markers. Used to be field rock markers but they are probably gone by now. The cemetery is on property that once belonged to my great grand father. It can be seen from the Jonathan Creek road. There are Wyatt's, Buff's and others buried in this cemetery.


Iron Duff isn't really a town, just a mountain farming community in a pretty valley. Not sure if it even has a post office any more. The area was settled pretty early. The churches with cemeteries, Iron Duff Baptist and Davis Chapel Methodist, are both in the heart of the valley and easily spotted. Davis Chapel is white frame and sits up on a knoll. Iron Duff Baptist is a new red brick structure (replacing the old frame building which burned a few years ago.

Riverside Cemetary just off Lake Logan Rd., on Inman Branch Rd.

Lake Logan Cemetery
