Condition:
This cemetery is fenced but not mowed or maintained. It is covered with myrtle and weeds. There are mostly large marble and granite monuments; no tablets were found.  Most are in decent condition.  One large stack stone is for John Miles and his wife Elizabeth (Hollingsworth), who were the first of the family in the area.  Their unmarried daughters Emily A. ("born blind and died very obese") and Sarah Jane ("born blind and dumb") are listed on the stone as well.  There is an interesting biography of John Miles in the 1878 Atlas.
