Notes

Lurty Landes provided cemetery burial information in the 1960's. He was the owner of the land at that time and was a great, great grandson of John and Susanna Thomas. Cemetery restored by Margaret Tysinger, Bud Tysinger, Carolyn & Don Landis, and Desmon Wichael. Additional family members contributed to the purchase of the Thomas Family stone. The stones of John & Susanna Thomas were badly broken, just a little stack of stones. They were pieced together and placed them in concrete along with other broken stones with no names. A new stone was placed marking the cemetery.
