About the cemetery
ca. 196 burials
This community had no post office until 1891, but the earliest burial in the historic cemetery dates from 1873, for Israel Rose. Members of the Rose family were early settlers in the vicinity and 22 of the 196 burials are for individuals with the Rose surname. The most colorful name appearing in the cemetery is Quintillus Hannibal Lawrence, buried there in 1937.
