Green Hill Chaires Family Cemetery


Visited 3/11/2001, transcribed by Vickie Stevens

This cemetery is located off Old Dirt Rd, off of Buck Lake Rd in East Leon Co. It's over grown and in deplorable condition. The graves appear to have been broken into and damaged. Most of the stones are broken and some are impossible to read and this cemetery appears totally abandoned.

This is the cemetery of the Green Hill Chaires family that were killed in an Indian raid in 1838.
