Unknown Tombstones
Graves of Unknown Infants
Grave with some visible letters
There are several graves here, most with blank sandstones for markers. This cemetery is in horrible shape !! Cows are running freely through it. I found three readable stones.

Infant son of T.J. and L.A. Thompson
Died April 10, 1884

M.B.A. Thompson wife of H.M. Thompson
April 15, 1810 - December 22, 1876
(I note that researchers think she is Martha McGuire, but I found that she probably is Martha A. Burr, her tombstone is a mystery of MBA but it is closer match than Martha McQuire. I suspect he married two Martha's; she was the wife of Harvey M. Thompson, who is also buried here, now unmarked. He was born 7 May 1811 and died 5 December 1878)
