  				Established Jan. 10, 1859 by John and Sarah Threet Poe. A son Oliver Perry 
  				Poe, a visitor in their home near here, died during an ice storm and was placed 
  				on a sled drawn by slaves and buried here.
  				The property remained in private ownership until April 28, 1910. It was deeded
  				to Liberty Baptist Church by William and Sarah F. Sheppard. The ownership was
  				transferred to Poe Cemetery Association June 23, 1946.
  				Erected in Memory of William Hobart Byrd Sr.
