This tiny family cemetery is listed as "Cemetery Lot-Pine Ridge Estate, Section 2" in the county land records. It contains .22 acres, is family owned and well tended. There is a place to park. It is not suitable for more burials.

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.
