Located in Morristown about 1.5 miles from Rt 21 South, west on Tuckers Creek Road. Cemetery is on the right side of the road.
This is a small cemetery that appears to be no longer in use, the last burial being in 1935. The cemetery is well kept. It is on property that was owned by the Kiger family.
After some research I found that Austin and Sybil Kiger and their 3 young daughters were all killed in the Historic Tucker Creek Flood on Jul 18, 1889. Two of the burial sites were unreadable. An asterisk * is at the end of the listing.
I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Sep 07, 2003.- Teresa Fordyce
