The person that photographically surveyed this cemetery from Findagrave.com back in 2001 found a very different place. The grounds of this cemetery were maintained then.  It is clear from these photos this cemetery has since been abandoned to the weeds and high brush growth. In today's wet summer environment around the south cemeteries must be mowed at least twice a year or they become lost in high brush.

Photographed on May 29, 2012. The inscriptions were updated with exceptions found or known by C. Wayne Austin. This publication culminated from various sources. First it was listed on page 135 of the book Lincoln County Cemeteries by the Marsh's. Added here 5 Mar 2013. Listed on findagrave.com.
