Latitude:  West 088 degrees 21.583
Located on private property

(Apparently still in use)

January 2001 there appeared to be five unmarked graves, one child and four adults. When my husband and I went back in October 2007, 
We only saw two of the previous unmarked graves, one adult and one child. The other three graves are no longer visible. There
has been a fairly recent burial and the grave is unmarked.
If anyone has any knowledge of any of the unmarked graves in this cemetery, please send me an email.

Your gentle face and patient smile
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled the heart
That loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore.
As time goes by we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.
