Oliver Cemetery
The Oliver Cemetery is located approx. a tenth mile outside the west South Carthage
City Limits on Lebanon Rd. (Hwy 70N). It is located on the old Rogers Conditt farm
on a knoll next to highway. We observed one stone which would have stood almost 8
foot tall that was down. There was another base but with no top part found.
Two graves were marked with fieldstones.
