Notes:

  1. *Dow L. & Hassie L. H. Miller gave the use of their property for a cemetery, planning to be buried there together when God called them home. Though in no hurry to take occupancy, by the time their reservation became due----the "Miller Haven of Rest" had overbooked, resulting in no vacancies! Not to be outdone, the Miller Family being a stout determined bunch, they simply added on the last tiny bit of usable ground, then extended the fence. Now Dow & Hassie rest in their rightful place at the entrance, overlooking the steep mountain to the valley below.
  2. There are 8 unmarked graves, one has "e-t-l-illia" on Funeral Home Marker.
