4 unmarked graves

Total 18 graves

Margarett Alexander and Blanche Tuten reported on February 28, 1976 that there were 8 unmarked graves and a total of 20 graves. From the earlier recording, we see that the marker for Ida Butler [Moore] has been added to probably replace one of the unmarked graves. Sidney Keeton's grave has been added. This indicates that stones for 3 unmarked graves have been lost since 1976.

Comment by David Donahue following April 16, 2001 visit: There may be no unmarked graves. Three graves marked with fieldstones at both head and foot probably account for six of the eight "unmarked" graves reported by Alexander and Tuten. The two Moore graves, which have recently-installed markers, would be the remaining two "unmarked" graves. There are 18 marked burials, 15 of which are identified.
