Surveyed by: Rich and Ginger Ballard 28 Mar 2003

Comments: When this cemetery was surveyed by Joe W. Phipps several years ago it was in a stand of pines. Recently it has been cleared and fenced. Although Mr. Phipps found about 4 more field stones than we did, we were able to see some detail on a few of these field stones that he could not when the cemetery was overgrown.
