I (Faye Bradford) have pictures from Boyet Cemetery. These came from my daughter. They were made on June 9, 2012 by Pam McAlpin and Melissa Atkins, my two daughters. Pam has wanted to join us on a cemetery trip for a long time and as we were leaving our family reunion we drove back out Bear Creek Pike and took a right at the end. We were enjoying the drive and were almost to Lewisburg when Pam saw this little green Cemetery sign on the left side of the road. All of the other cemeteries we saw before that we had already done.
This cemetery is so close to the (Ellington) airport that the fields behind it look like they are a part of it. You go right through an opening in the very grown up fence row beside the cemetery sign and you are in a field with just a path across it. If you look in front and over to the right across the first field area you see a spot where the grass is clipped very close, just enough to park a couple of cars and you see a fenced in area where the cemetery is located. Pam made the photos as I told her how we needed them and Missy did the chalking. She knew Pam wanted to do that one. I told her also to get several area shots.
The cemetery is well maintained.
The grass was cut short. I do wish some of the greenery around a couple of
the markers could have been cut back. It is completely shaded by trees and
growth around the fencing and has at least two huge cedar trees right in the
middle. [Faye Bradford 22 Jun 2012.]
