Notes

Cemetery is not maintained and without fence. River rocks can be seen marking numerous graves. In 1967 J. Robert Swank wrote, "Located on the west side of Road 612 about 1/2 mile south of Owen Phillips home. On the east side of the old road. There were perhaps as many as 40 graves."
On September 1, 2004, Garland & Ora Hoover of Lakeland, Florida, erected new stones honoring their ancestors.
