Hixon Cemetery is located on Turkey Ridge Road, one half mile east of Mt. Olive Road. More than half of the stones in the cemetery are of common field stone, and about two dozen of them have no inscriptions. Quite a few stones have been piled up in heaps and are no longer at any particular grave site. There are evidently several stones missing, because older people of the area remember stones being more numerous than at present. Some of the stones have more than likely been thrown into sunken graves that have been filled in. Many have fallen over and have sunken into the ground where they can be mown over, and they are slowly being covered and hidden by grass. Undoubtedly other stones have suffered the same fate. This list was compiled on site on September 6, 1976.
