The Tyree Cemetery is located approximately three miles north of New Middleton a half
mile beyond the end of Barnett's Campground Lane. It is located in a field under a wild
Cherry tree to west of old abandon road that went across hill to Barnett's Campground on
Plunkett's Creek. There is a chimney remaining of an old house that burned several years
ago 100 yards west of cemetery location. A heavy growth of the cemetery groundcover
periwinkle marks the site. This is a remote area accessible only by four wheel drive vehicle.
Tyree, James A. 17 June 1822 - 17 Nov 1896
