Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson; Updated 06 Sep 2009:

Comments: The cemetery is in excellent condition. The church is quite old, established in 1892, but it appears that the cemetery was not opened until 1950. A small stream, Cranberry Creek, flows nearby. I was once told that it got this name because people used to raise cranberries there. Apparently the church and the surrounding community got their names from the creek. Information in [brackets] is not on the stone.
