My husband and I were the ones who located the cemetery, under a huge brush and briar patch, several years ago. You would not have known it existed except an elderly lady remembered it from when she was a child. We cleaned all the brush and briars with the help of friends, located stones and put pieces back together of all we could find.. The footstone UDS was probably a child named Udora. Later another descendant had a fence placed around the cemetery so the cattle didnít scatter the stones again. . . .

I am a descendant of Berryman Saunders and his first wife, Betsy Tubbs, not the Naomi T. Williams who is buried in the cemetery. I am very interested in all the Sanders/Saunders families in the area as I feel they are related in some way.. Some kept the "U" in their name and some are just Sanders, which is the correct spelling.
