This deed was filed on 13 Feb 1913 in Book CH Vol 80 Page 235. On the east side another small section has been fenced with hog wire. The oldest marked grave is that of F. O. Smith d. 15 Aug 1913. This cemetery was surveyed on 12 Feb 1997 by Lawrence and Sue Dale. In February 1999 an interested group began a complete clean-up and re-fencing of the cemetery removing all old fencing and doing some levelling in the process. There have been no additional markers found, however. We were on the site on 10 Jan 2004 and took the GPS Coordinates and did a rewalk of the cemetery checking for changes to markers. The fence is now installed and ready for the new gates."
