DYE CEMETERY

Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2003


Dye Cemetery is located southeast of Gainesville on CR 219.   It was surveyed by Pattie Tucker in 1978 followed by my survey on Feb 17, 2003.  At that time I noted so many disappearing grave markers.   Sandstones were lying around with no effort being made to record the quickly disappearing initials and names.  My final visit in January 2010 was to create a pictorial record of the stones which remain.  This old graveyard is endangered by weather, past vandalism? or careless upkeep.   As an example, one can look at the stone of infant Willie Click, which was placed there 127 years ago and is now on the ground.  If no picture accompanies a name, it was no longer found in 2010.
