Notes: One large tree has recently fallen into the center of the graveyard and luckily no stones were in its path, but a large log now separates the tall obelisk monuments from the others.
It has been reported in the past that the John & Elizabeth Bayless inscriptions were on the same stone but actually they each have an identical stone as can be seen in the above photos. Benjamin & Mary Eddins do share a stone though.
