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

This fieldstone marked grave with a head and footstone is likely for an infant child. It is located in the Vick area of the graveyard, about 15 feet northeast of the head stone of John H & Annie Jane Vick.

Vick family memorials under the tall shrub bushes out next to the fence. Here we also see the fieldstones that line the same row adjacent to the Vick memorials as we are looking south from over next to the gate. We will track them individually down the row going south down the north/south row.

These closer views of the unknown stones # 7 & 8 are in the Vick family row adjacent to the Johnnie Vick memorial on our far left corner. Beyond that are the other John H Vick grave lots.

This is a close up view of the same photo at the  top of this page where we are looking down the row of what I believe to be the Vick family graves many of them unknown interments and the last 5 of them with marked stones. Due to the high weeds and summer brushes coverage many of he photos that Trina took were not as visible as the ones taken in December by this photographer, but these are surperb photos.

 Focusing in on the 2nd stone which is inscribed with W.A. Vick. Photo by Trina Boyd 10 Oct 2009

VICK, W.A. or W.J., (no dates, fieldstone hand inscribed with initials W.A. and surname Vick in the row with the Vick family graves. This is thought to be Wesley J. Vick born 1821 and died unknown. Might be the father of John H. Vick.)
This rough cut (2nd in our row) fieldstone is hand inscribed with the lettering W. A. (or J) Vick . Findagrave.com says it is Wesley J. Vick b. 1821.
