Silvey Cemetery looking northwest from outside of the gated fence while standing in the John Hunt Park.
Looking at the base of the large Pin Oak tree. The rock on the left may have at one time marked the head or foot of a grave even a lost grave.
Looking at the base of the Jacob Sivley family stones. On the right is Jacob Sivley, his wife Alcey, & a son Joseph Sivley further left.
A shot inside the long north south tract of the cemetery with plenty of room for unmarked graves. There is a story of buried treasure being uncovered here that I chose not to tell because some idiot will think they can go digging here and find something. The only thing they will do is desecrate the graves here. Do not be caught digging in this cemetery or you will be prosecuted by the law. Cameras will catch you mounted on the buildings across the fence for security purposes.

Looking west at the Andrew Sivley family monument.
Looking southwest at the Jacob Sivley military & family memorials from the east side of the cemetery.
This southward photo give one a sense of how long this cemetery is with plenty of open space for unknown graves. Also it may be that though there are five names inscribed on one monument the graves may be in a row down this way.
This southeast photo gives one a sense of how long this cemetery is with plenty of open space for unknown graves.
Panning the camera left more yields this photo in a more eastward shot. We see the entrance monument and the Crews memorial under the cedar trees.
Looking west across the base ball field toward the Sivley Cemetery just this side of the light poles in the distance.
