September 15, 1997, This cemetery is the first that I've run across that has truly been abandoned. The above stone is the only one left of 7 that were there at one time, and it is broken and laying on the ground. The area is covered with briars and undergrowth making it difficult to find the other stones. I plan to return this winter and look again. The story behind the cemetery dates to the 1870's. The family buried here was supposedly stricken by a polio epidemic which wiped out the whole family. I was told that two of the stones marked Confederate solders' graves. The cemetery was apparently in bad shape 50 years ago, and in even worse shape today. A special thanks goes to Lance Howell for showing me the site.
