*These were cement blocks with only the name painted on them. There were a total of 14 of these; those that had any legible information were photographed. A few were completely illegible and were not photographed. There were also graves marked with fieldstones which were not photographed.

On 30 March 2008 Brenda Chancellor wrote: Hopefully I can help solve the mystery of some of the unmarked graves. I was there several years ago and did a diagram of the cemetery. It goes as follows
Left to right, front to back:
Clyde Starr, Floyd Starr, Myrtle Starr
Second row: Frank Jones, Ben Jones, Clifford Jones, Millie Jones, Isom Jones, Grandma Jones (?Martha Patsy), Savannah Jones-Yandell, Evie Jones, Carrie Jones, unknown Jones
Third row: Unknown Jones, Unknown Jones, Baby Frazier, Mary Horton.
Those are the only ones that had any names on them at all. I think that maybe one of the unknown Jones is Martha Patsy's husband David J. Jones since I have not found him in any other cemetery in the area. Hope this information helps. If you find any other info on any of the family please share with me as this is my family. Savannah Orleana was my Great Grandmother.
