The nearby Howell village at one time was called Cane Creek. You will see that on the old census records.

Really had difficulty photographing this cemetery. It was wet and a rain storm was brewing in the distance with an accompanying lightning storm. Eventually the lens got wet leaving blurry spots on the photo worsening the problem. Many of the photos came out dark and blurred. Digital cameras don't like dark wet environments. Also the hurrying to beat the rain storm probably caused some camera shake which caused most of the blurring. Oh well learn from experience as I probably will not get a repeat experience there.
 

Photographed on a rainy  morning of 21 Aug 2013. The inscriptions were updated with exceptions found or known by C. Wayne Austin. This publication culminated from various sources. Listed on page 42-43 of the book Lincoln County County Cemeteries by Tim & Helen Marsh, abt 1978. Added here 18 Jan 2014. Most of the Sawyer & Other unmarked grave information came from the cemetery book Lincoln County Cems by the Tim & Helen Marsh, abt 1978.
