Smith Cemetery, February 2001


            Smith Cemetery is on the ridge south of Tom's Creek in Perry County. The access road joins State Route 438 at the top of the ridge. It would seem to be a family cemetery except that the Lawrence and Wilsdorf graves are separated from the Smith family graves. Though the cemetery has been in use since 1917, most markers date from the 1960s or later. With one exception, all are low to the ground. The trees shown above, either themselves or as shadows, probably uprooted in a 2003 storm. An uprooted tree had displaced one marker.

            David Donahue recorded Smith Cemetery on February 17, 2001 and checked and updated it on August 29, 2004.
