Old Combs Cemetery, Hayter Valley

Located high on a ridge above Rt. 615 near the junction of Rt. 631 along Weavers Creek near Big A Mtn. The cemetery lies on part of the original Combs plantation and specifically on the part which was willed by William Combs to his sons John M. & Thompson Combs in 1841. There are many unmarked field stones in the cemetery. William & Anna "Thompson" Combs are probably buried here in unmarked graves. This cemetery is in pretty good shape for its age. There are a few stones that have fallen over though.
