and others died at birth. To the west of Gass stone where the cedar tree stands
a brother of Henry Gass is buried- name unknown. A fieldstone near the East
side of iron fence is _____ Smith Lynch, wife of Ike Lynch. On the West side
of cemetery a Confederate soldier is buried who died from wounds at a nearby
skirmish. He had a hand carved stone until about 50 years ago when it became
missing. Name of the soldier may have been Hathaway.
