Contributed by Roberta Dooley, Sep 14, 2002 [rjdooley23@aol.com] Total records = 35.

This cemetery is located off of Independence Ridge Road in Breeding. You turn off of the main road in Breeding onto Independence Ridge Road (go past Fudge Cemetery, Greenbriar Road and continue) right past Wells Chapel there will be a gravel road the veers off to the right take that gravel road till you come to another gravel road on the right (next to Glenn Stotts home) that road has been named Estes/McKinney Cemetery Rd.

You can see the cemetery from the road and it has a good road all of the way up to the cemetery. There is a new chain link fence around the cemetery with a flag flying high.

Information in parenthesis was added from research and not on the tombstone.

I walked and read this cemetery in the summer of 2002.

* 9-12 graves in Row 3 are marked with rock, but think they are in this order, mom remembers her daddy talking of the headstones in this way. Warfield and Mary Ann McKinney Estes are probably the first ones to be buried in this cemetery that is where it got the name from.
