Beginning at Cumberland Courthouse
proceed west on Rt 60 to Rt 45.
Go left/south on Rt 45. At Rt 631 go left/east and proceed east along Rt 631 (Davenport Road) to Rt 641, and
continue slowly on Rt 631 less than a mile.
The house & cemetery are located on the right (south) side of the road. Cemetery is in front yard.
Home was likely owned by Stephen Cooke, 1811-1842. Owned thereafter by Moses Smith, Spurgeon Smith. Byrd Smith said to be earliest grave. Wright family now owns this property.
I walked this cemetery in 1980. This includes all existing and legible markers and stones plus WPA information. Cemetery was in good condition.
