Notes:

  1. According to Mr. Lacy Hash, a kind, interesting gentleman who now owns the property, the first gravesite was given to one in need. Other requests followed; therefore a portion of mountainside was reserved for a cemetery, including a choice spot Mr. Cook planned as his final resting place. By the time he died, the allotted space was filled, resulting in a need for a gravesite!The designated cemetery space was later expanded, but numerous early graves were unmarked or poorly marked with fieldstones which, through the years have disappeared. This often has created problems (for many) in digging new graves when workers discover it is an unmarked existing gravesite. Collapsed homemade untreated pine boxes are a common sight. Sometimes a number of attempts are necessary before finding a vacancy.

  2. There are over a hundred gravesites in this cemetery, with only fifty-seven identified. This includes 28 Unmarked gravesites plus 4 Unmarked infant graves and 1 Unmarked child grave. One grave marker has only the year 1961 readable.
