About the Cemetery
Cemetery is located on land grant #12426 to Joshua H. Hinton, Section 35, year 1855 and land grant #10930 to James Grissom, Section 35, year 1854. The cemetery today is on the private property of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Moore, and the owners should be consulted prior to visiting.
All visible burials are noted. Three large native rocks are also present within the boundaries of the cemetery, however no identification exists. Family history suggests that one of these rocks marks the grave of J. H. Hinton’s wife Arena Grissom. Additionally, local history states that many years ago an unidentified man found dead in a Railroad Boxcar is also buried here.
