YOKLEY CEMETERY, (Hwy 245 & Smith Hollow Rd) GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE.

This area photo looks south from the north side of the cemetery at the Alexander box tombs and their sons. Info and Photo by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.

This photo was snapped from the east side up the slope next to the fence. Photo dated 21 Dec 2009 & Information by Wayne Austin, 20 Jan 2010.

This photo shows the tumbled mess of the Jacob & Almanza Yokley memorials with broken and piled up stones everywhere. This damage is probably caused from cattle rubbing against the stones as the bases seem level to me and might be otherwise standing. Info and Photo by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.

This rather distant photo looks northeast from the west side of the cemetery. The old & tall ones that are buried deep into the ground are still standing though they may lean badly. The newest stones around the late 1800s or early 1900s are all fallen to the ground because the bases have not been kept level and/or the cattle knock them over along with trees falling on them.

This photo looks west at the western part of the cemetery at some of the oldest Alexander and Abernathy memorials. The stone leaning out from the tree is for C.C. Ellis. The gate is in the upper center of the photo and standing open. The hardware that bolts it and keeps it closed is missing. 
Generally the small stones out in front of the big ones are foot stones to the east of the headstones.

This photo looks north at many of the Yokley memorials. Photo & info by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.

This image looks south at the English memorials. We also see the white color (sun reflecting from it) of the American Revolutionary War Soldier David Abernathy - military marker in the far right middle of the photo. Photo & info by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.

Here looking southwest we see the tombs of several of the Abernathy and English family memorials. In the bottom right corner we see just a little of the corner of the American Revolutionary War Soldier David Abernathy military marker.

Panning further west, but still looking southwest we see the tombs of several of the Abernathy and English family memorials. In the bottom right area we see just a little of the side of the American Revolutionary War Soldier David Abernathy military marker. In the distance is the Hedge Trees overshadowing the Vick Family graves. Info and Photo by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.

Looking east at many of the memorials this wide angle photo shows some of the Yokley & Alexander memorials. Info and Photo by Wayne Austin 21 Dec 2009.
