In Nov of 1999 we found this cemetery of about two acres completely overgrown with 8 foot tall Lilac bushes with several trails through the bushes. There is no longer a road to it and you must walk downhill through a field, cross Lyons Creek and uphill through more field. It has been vandalized and a number of stones are broken. There are a few wooden headstones that are no longer readable.Original information provided by Garland Wilson, area historian. Earliest listed burial was 1871. Last listed burial was 1919 Walked and read by Rella and Jim Gleaton Nov 19, 1999.
