Craighead Cemetery
The Craighead Cemetery is located on the hill behind the house at #54 Friendship Hollow
Road in the Defeated community. The cemetery is adjoining the Swan Cemetery. The
Swan Cemetery is fenced and neatly maintained but the Craighead Cemetery is
grown up and tombstones are down. When first visiting the Swan Cemetery in
2002 we did not discover this cemetery next to it. (see link below text)
