Clay Springs Cemetery (UNMARKED GRAVES)

In order to help preserve as much of our past history as possible, for the past several years, I have tried to find the unknowns ( buried without names on stones) in the Clay Springs Cemetery. At one time there was a log church located here but the church was torn down in the 1930's. Clay Springs sits quietly on a hillside at the end of a gravel road and has been in use since before the Civil War.
In the OVERTON COUNTY ROLL CALL by Gary D. Norris, he lists the unknowns at Clay Springs as 75. In looking through early death records, family records and Bibles, and talking with older family members of the deceased and with the help of others, I have found the following unknowns (or unmarked):
