This cemetery was visited on January 18, 1997 by Wanda Skinner for the purpose of updating the records.
B.H. GREER was Buck Henderson GREER whose father was Buck Henderson GREER and his mother was Rosa TORGETT. His wife was Cora Johnson GREER. His death is recorded in book 3A page 290 Eastland County Courthouse. Page 226 of The Eastland County History Book gives more information this family. His birthday is listed as July 16, 1886 Ga. on the death certificate. This is another of the many puzzles to genealogy.
