I don't know what the situation is regarding the missing stones of this cemetery. Neither I nor anyone lately have been able to find any monuments to the other folks grouped into this cemetery. Maybe the other stones are located away from the above three monuments and no one saw them. I did look around, but sometimes in these old graveyards stones can be scattered a 100 yards apart with nothing in between. The area of this cemetery is really just a part of a tree lined thicket which extends north and south. One would think all the Isom kin would be found in one area of this cemetery but I cannot conclude that. Either the old historical cemetery listers were capturing the others as unmarked graves or something is amiss here regarding grave locations.

This cemetery presentation is based on the photography of C. Wayne Austin 2 Mar 2011. This material was presented on page 175-176 Lincoln County Tennessee Cemeteries (book.) by Tim and Helen Marsh. Much of the listing. Site linkage & typing were done by Faye Bradford and Mary Bob McClain Richardson, both of Birmingham Alabama whose acquaintance is only known over the internet. Both of these ladies have Maury County Tennessee heritage.  Added to this site 14 Jul 2012 by C. Wayne Austin. Presented on findagrave with the same three inscriptions photographed as discussed in the notation section.
