Arrived here via a search engine? Read the Introduction

This cemetery is located on the Buffalo River and very hard to get to. After the Laffoon family cleared the brush away in 1987, I walked down there and wrote down all the info I could find on the tombstones. I hope it may help someone in the future.
Please keep in mind that this cemetery was known by two different names: Cedar Creek Cemetery and Cabin Creek Cemetery. Actually, I think the cemetery is located between the two creeks (although I don't have a map in front of me to verify that fact). Regardless, most of the old timers called it Cedar Creek..... last time I was there (about 1989), a sign had been erected which said "Cabin Creek Cemetery." You might want to list this cemetery using both names. The following is all the information I have.
Best Regards,
David L. Scott

These are the only graves with tombstones. There are about 45-50 unmarked graves (maybe even more). The earliest recorded burial was 1878 and the most recent was 1940. I would suspect that many of the unmarked graves date prior to 1870. David
