Mapping the Location
STRONG, Gertrude Moss, wife of M.
April 16. 1851 - October 18, 1934.
STRONG, James Carlton, July 14, 1914 - Aug. 3, 1915. Asleep in Jesus.
STRONG, James Harrison, June 10. 1910 - June 27. 1910. A little time on earth he spent, till God for him his angel sent.
STRONG, Sally, (Note: This marker was weathered beyond reading. It may be Sallie Booth who married Pleasant Strong Nov. 27, 1817. or it may be Pleasant's second wife, Sally Stewart (Steward? Stuart?), a widow. whom he married Oct. 15, 1835. Sally Booth Strong was born Nov. 23, 1798 and died sometime before 1835.)
STRONG, Hopson, (Note: this marker was illegible also. This Is Hopson Strong, the son of George Strong and Mary "Polly" East, who was born Jan. 27, 1801 and died Oct. 9, 1835. George Strong was the son of Nathan Strong and Caty Callahan; Mary ''Polly" was the daughter of Benjamin East and Nancy Pruitt.) NOTE: I was told by Lucille (Lula) Strong Powell, whose family cemetery this is, that Pleasant Strong was buried in this cemetery without a headstone. Also that Mary "Polly" East was buried here without a headstone. If Polly East is buried here then I expect her husband. George Strong, is also buried here.

STRONG, George, son of Nathan and Caty Callahan Strong, Born Jan. 15, 1773. Married Mary "Polly" East June 6, 1797, Died August 18. 1834.

I recently visited this mapped place in attempting to find this cemetery and was disappointed to find nothing but a large open field with no sign of a cemetery. It appears not to be here anymore or possibly it was miss-mapped. It probably has been destroyed by the current owner who recently added giant irrigation equipment, because Google Maps show a recent massive land moving operation here. He evidently bulldozed the cemetery to clear the area for the equipment. The mapping I have shown under "Mapping the Location" shows no conclusion as to the location of the cemetery, but shows it in two places out in the giant field as shown in these two maps and next to the Pulaski Pike. I saw no evidence it was in neither location. However, I did not get a good look.
