All photos, cemetery information and names with * submtted by Richard Meador

Cemetery is on private property. It has been years since it has been cleaned. It has large walnut trees surounded by pastures and lot of brush. Most of the stones have been overturned. There are over 2 dozen grave sites marked with just plain rocks for both head and foot stones. I am also sure there are other stones buried. I uncovered 3 that were buried....Richard.
