With the aid of Donny Williams, a local long time resident of Rising Fawn, I surveyed
this cemetery. Unless you have the help of someone who knows the area you will not find
this cemetery. It is in a cow pasture.
The markers are recorded as found so as to be able to put family groups together.
I recorded all fieldstones that clearly marked gravesites without markers and sunken graves without fieldstones
or markers. Where possible I confirmed with family members or other genealogical sources the names of persons
and dates without markers. When I was recording these cemeteries, I recorded them manually with pen and paper
and also read the names and dates into a tape recorder which I then transcribed and compared the two. Every
effort was made to record this cemetery as accurately as possible, if there is a conflict with a date please use
other sources to verify. I cannot recheck this cemetery.

we have a building of God and house not made with hands.
