From the intersection of Highway 27 (Ridge Road) and Kate Wagnor Road, turn east onto Kate Wagnor Road and go .5 miles until you reach Gist Road. Turn north onto Gist Road and go .5 miles until you reach Hook Road. Turn onto Hook Road abd go east 2 blocks. The cemetery is on the north side of the road in a field surrounded by a black iron fence.

The first burial occured in 1816 and the last burial took place in 1995. Most not if all of the descendants of the Gist Family are buried here. The cemetery is neat and well taken care of. This is a very patriotic family with first names such as Federal and State.

I have transcribed from readings taken from all existing headstones, when I visited this cemetery on Aug 31, 2003.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
