**According to Camp County Story, it was Henderson Burying Ground first....then Yallo Busha. Jim Keel is the person that named the community Yallo Busha after a place in his native Alabama. Then later the Lain family (per 1970 story) had 5 sets of grandparents buried there, which would account for that name. It was located on Lilly Creek Bottom. In 1909 Hopewell Baptist Church was built in the same area and the community & cemetery soon adopted that name.
