Photographed 9 Oct 2012. The inscriptions were updated with exceptions found or known by C. Wayne Austin. This publication culminated from various sources. First it was compiled by Faye Bradford, Feb 2011.  Listed on page 504-505 of the book Giles County Cemeteries by the Historical Society about 1988. Added here first 27 Sep 2011. After visits by Trish Boone and later Wayne it was revised to include the photos on 15 Oct 2012. I added some of the above on listings on Findagrave.com
