Many of these stones are NOT listed in the cemetery books.-Teresa

I recieved the following from Wanda Sory: When I visited the Cemetery two years ago there were a couple of men cleaning it up (this was winter two years ago). They told us that the graves outside the main fence of the cemetery was those of slaves. I don’t know what type of condition they are in because after that I broke my leg in six places and was out of commission for seven months on crutches. And I have not gotten back up there to look at it. Thought you might be interested in that. I don’t know if they cleaned up that part of the cemetery or now or if they took the fence down and made it one complete cemetery. I wasn’t even sure if it was in any condition for you to know that there were graves outside the main cemetery. Wanda

We did not see these graves when we photographed, so they may have removed the fence and this was the stones we saw in the very back that were marked stay out.-Teresa

Stone illegible

“The illegible tombstone pictured after the "Infant Haynes" tombstone and before the "J. W. and Tommie L. Haynes" tombstone is for my great-great-great grandparents, Thomas Lowe Hendrix born December 5, 1817 and died February 28, 1902 and his wife, Elizabeth (Prince) Hendrix born March 12, 1818 and died June 30, 1895.  Their single illegible tombstone is inclosed in a wire fence around their graves.   The original words on their stones were readable several years ago and reads:  "T. L. & E. Hendrix" under his name was his age "age 84 yr. 4 m. 22 da"  Inscribed under her name was her age, "age 77 yr. 4m. 17da."
Thanks, Jerry W. Cook,”

Notice that I am not wearing snake shoes?  Mistake. Mistake, Mistake.  :)  He was only about 6 foot long and asleep at the base of one of these tombstones.  Luckily for me, he was asleep.  It was incredibly hot that day, and he must have been a little dehydrated.  Soon after this picture was taken, I got snake boots. 🙂

Lots of unmarked and probably snake ridden graves are under these trees.  There were stones leaning against piles of rocks .  There was a sign on the tree in the middle warning visitors not to proceed past that point, and Jeff and I are good at obeying signs. 🙂

    Hi,
    Thank you, for the great pictures , and information. I have been wonder who Adeline Birdwell was buried next to in the grave yard. I have gotten my DNA done I have noticed a lot of Clark’s, Taylor’s , Black’s, Morgan’s ,and that’s a few name I haven’t been able to figure out. I know very little able this side of the family.
    Adeline Birdwell is the mother to Hugh Birdwell Little. She past not to long after having her son. Her husband S.H Little initials stands for, Sanpherd Harris Little. He was born in abt Jan 1, 1812 in Tennessee and passed in Lamar, Texas. He married two more time that we are aware of 2 wife Agnes Nance (no children) and 3rd wife Martha Rule (many children). I have been looking for, any information about him. I know both parents were born in Virginia, and I DNA with family that are from William Little and Mourning Kimborough. James Taylor was the bondsman on their wedding license.
    If anyone has information please let me know.
    Does anyone know if there is anyone to contact about the graves in the back , so we can find out more information on them?
    Sincerely ,
    SC

    Hi! I photographed this cemetery today on a way to Lucky Ladds. It is beautiful! I’m so glad we didn’t run into any snakes though. I’d never even thought about that. Do they just like the cold stones?

    Anyway, did you ever find out about the graves in the back? There is no longer a sign warning people not to go back there but I didn’t just because it looks overgrown and I was with my little one.

      Haven’t been back since we photographed it. I am not sure if the area in the back was old stones or just large rocks, but like you, it was grown up enough and I grew up in that area, so I know snaky areas when I see them. Wonder why they took the sign down though.
