Surveyed by: Juanita H. Watson 17 Sep 1987

Comments: Willie Carrico, a great uncle and Dewey Carico, an uncle went to the funeral of Abel Carrico IV and Rebecca Russell. They remember at one time a little girl buried there with her name written on one of the rocks. When I visited the cemetery on 17 Sep 1987, the name had faded away.
