W.P. (or W., P.) This is a shaped fieldstone, located near the center of the cemetery. This might be the grave of Permanas Williams, from the style I know it is very old or prior to 1820. I am concerned though that the surname may have begun with a P. instead of a W. 4960
Fieldstone marked graves: 4916/4918/4920/4921/4922/4958/4959/4963

To add a little to the Bynum research, Elizabeth Timmons, daughter of Hannah and William Timmons, married Buffin Bynum on 13 January 1830 in Maury County, TN. Next to William Timmons lived Young Bynum who I assume was the father of Buffin. The 1830 census shows Young between 60-70, but I think Elizabeth and Buffin were living with her parents that first year of their marriage. It seems Buffin died before 1840 when Elizabeth and daughters Elizabeth and Frances apparently were living with William and Hannah. Daughter Elizabeth Bynum
married Joel Goad on 1 August 1849. The 1850 census has Hannah Timmons, age 76, with Elizabeth Bynum, 48, and Frances Bynum, 16, in the household (William died between 1845-1850). Separately, Joel Goad, 27, and Eliza Goad, 18, were living very close to the Timmons' families along Santa Fe Pike, a few miles northwest of Columbia.

Our thanks go to Ann & J.B. Lamar of Columbia for their help in finding this cemetery. I had looked for it several times before, but because the GPS coordinates were wrong by at least a half of a mile and all the roads changed I had no success. The Lamars' also directed me to the Pillow Cemetery which will show up on this site later.
This cemetery listing was donated by Mary Bob Richardson and came from a composite of listings in the various books of the past. Mr. Fred Hawkins in the book Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries listed this cemetery on page 761. He visited 7 Mar 1988. Before that it was listed in the book They Passed This way page A-118, about 1967. Updated with a visit & photography by C. Wayne Austin and the help of J.B. & Ann Lamar. 4 Apr 2011.
