Surveyed by: Paul Herndon, 1995; Billy Hash, Mar 2004

Comments: We aren’t sure where this cemetery was located. Paul Herndon reported that the cemetery was on the west-facing point of a finger ridge, untended, overgrown, fence down, and that the owner in 1995 was Laura Belle Holdaway. Billy Hash described it as lying on the hill east of Fox Creek Road 1/4 mile north of the Pine Branch community. The first set of coordinates were reported by Mr. Herndon and the second were estimated by us. They do not match. Cemetery has approximately fifteen fieldstone markers and sunken places where some additional 30 or so graves could be. No names are inscribed on any of the field stones. Family members provided information to Mr. Hash about people known to be buried here.
