At least 8 block bases are in place. The fallen stones that were discovered might have originally been on these foundations but they were found some 20 feet away. Dozens of fieldstones show that this was once a very large graveyard
covering about half acre. The undergrowth has at least been cleared away and cattle keep it under control. Fred Lee Hawkins, 4 Apr 1986.

This cemetery was photographed and transcribed again by Gene Geraci 19 Jul 2012. Photos E-mailed here for publication to this site 20 Jul 2012.  Originally published in Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries, by Fred Lee Hawkins, Jr. page 86. A few of Mr. Fred's notes were included, Also before that published on page C-25 of the book They Passed This Way in the 1964 by Marise P. Lightfoot & Evelyn B. Shackleford. This book left out the Harrison & Bauguss listings and mentioned the reason as overgrown cemetery which is understandable.
