Comments: Cemetery has had brush and fencing cleared away. It stands in open pasture with many field stones scattered about, cattle grazing. Harold Ray S. Weaver guided us on 10 Oct 95.This cemetery was long forgotten, but was rediscovered when Mr. Emerson was clearing off part of his land. It is on a ridge to the north of Mr. Emerson’s house, and is in sight of Corinth Baptist Church. At the time of the survey this cemetery was inaccessible due to hay and water; however, Mr. Emerson provided us with a listing of this cemetery and this was compared to Paul Herndon’s information.
