McMillan Cemetery

McMillan
Cemetary [sic]
Established 1893 __ Rededicated 1989
On this site George A. and Nancy McMillan journeyed from Tennessee to home-
stead and raise their family.

This is a small fenced cemetery in need of some attention. It is located in the area of Hiwasse, on Hwy. 279, .5 miles N of the junction with Hwy. 72. It is on the E side of the road. I could discern only one grave marker through the debris.

On the reverse side of the sign is a listing of those buried here, which includes some genealogical notes. I assume that McMillan family descendents are responsible for the rededication of the cemetery and the sign. I have transcribed the information printed on the sign below.
