Surveyed by: Joe W. Phipps, date unknown; Rich and Ginger Ballard, 24 Mar 2003. Additional information from the files of Paul Herndon has been added.
Comments: The fenced area of this cemetery is much larger than indicated by the number of marked graves. It appears any field stones have been removed when brush was cleared off the cemetery, but depressions show there are numerous –perhaps 20 or 30– unmarked graves here.
