There are a large number of fieldstones marking other graves. This is the principle cemetery for the members of the Union Church and surrounding community. It is fairly well-kept, however, the first time I saw the place it was summertime and the cemetery had been allowed to grow up in broom sedge. Listed on 3 Feb 1987. Fred Lee Hawkins Jr.
