This cemetery is on the west side of Dumas Wise Rd. 2.1 Miles North of Pine Grove Road. Located in the National Wildlife Refuge.

This small cemetery was owned by the Wise McGehee Family, but it does not seem to be getting much care at this time. There were cans and debris strewn all over the area.

This is a complete list of all visible and legible markers. I read it using a digital camera on Mar 20, 2004.

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.
