Cemetery Records

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.

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.
